Our workbooks, our GIFT to you, from us....
We are well aware that a fairly large amount of students in our society struggles to read and many of them would learn to read and spell much better if they have the help they need.
Thus, we are tirelessly working around the clock writing our first workbook, our GIFT to students who would like to learn how to read and spell effectively but do not have the resources for our service. Of course, our one-to-one intervention is more effective with faster progress than our workbooks, but having our workbooks are better than nothing and no help at all.
We would also like to work with schools to help our students learn how to read and spell effectively, especially for those individuals with dyslexia and other disabilities who do not have resources to avail our service.
If you are one of the parents with the same situations as mentioned, contact your school and let them contact us. We will train their teacher/s to teach your child to read and we have our workbooks for them to use for a whole year of teaching.
If your child's school ignores you, then find another option, for example, contact your politicians or in-charge of the literacy in Quebec Ministry of Education or we will find another option - to teach you how to teach your child to read using our workbooks as your guide and materials, of course, as mentioned, our one-to-one intervention with your child is way more effective with faster progress, but teaching you to teach your child is better than your child cannot be able to read and spell for his entire life.
What makes our workbooks different from others?
Our workbooks are based on the Orton-Gillingham approach. They integrate phonological awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary and comprehension through systematic, logical and sequential step by step lessons . While they are for nonreaders and struggling readers from kindergarten and up, everyone can benefit from our workbooks including the second language learners whose reading and spelling acquisitions are below their expected level.
Our workbooks include strategies and rules of the English language. They are systematic and explicit. The organization of the materials follows the logical order of the language. The sequence begins with the most basic and easiest elements of the concepts and progresses to more difficult lessons. The introduction of each step is based on the concepts previously presented. All lessons, words, activities, and keywords to remember the sounds have meticulously been chosen to facilitate reading and spelling effectively. In addition, our materials offer substantial activities for practice to reinforce learning and to help students build their reading and spelling fluency.
However, it is ideal that whoever supervises the learners to use our materials must have the knowledge of our approach to reading, spelling and handwriting instructions. For this reason, we are in the process of offering the Multisensory Reading system Structured Language Instruction Training for Beginners. This training is ideal for kindergarten, grade one and/or teachers who work with students who have not internalized the sounds yet and have difficulty connecting the sounds as well as students with reading impairments
