We provide instruction both in-person & online to support struggling readers.
Working with us is different than working with a traditional tutor. Our interventionists are all skilled in working with evidence-based practices to get quantifiable results. We monitor student progress every session and take formal standardized data every four months to make sure your child is on track.
We have developed an Orton-Gillingham curriculum that aligns all of the best practices of reading intervention in a way that can be specifically customized and tailored to remediate your child's difficulties. While we use our curriculum as a foundation and guide for our sessions we always specifically individualize our programming to meet your child's needs.
Additionally, we offer complete video lessons instructed by one of our educational therapists so that you can stay on top of your child's learning or work with him or her further at home. We tailor our home learning component to fit your family's individual needs.
We have three different levels of curricula that range from pre-reading and beginning literacy skills to advanced morphology.
Beginner - A 30-lesson program focusing on sound-symbol correspondence, foundational skills (phonological awareness), and beginning reading comprehension and writing composition skills.
Intermediate - A 30-lesson program focusing on the five core components of reading including phonological awareness, phonics, vocabulary, reading fluency, and comprehension as well as writing composition and spelling.
Advanced - A 30-lesson program focusing on advanced concepts and sound patterns, application skills, and morphology through the study of Greek and Latin roots.
We do have a home practice component that is incorporated into our lessons and while we have found significant growth in a once to twice per week model, we know that distributed practice is the key to long-term success.
What does evidence-based reading support look like?
How long do students work with you?
Typically students work with our team for between 1-2 years. After this time students should have many of the tools and strategies in place to be successful independently. While we know that dyslexia is a journey and new struggles pop up at different points, our goal is not to work with your child forever. Our goal is to provide both you and your child with a road map and the tools you need to be successful without us!
What type of results can we expect?
Students following our Dyslexia Intervention program have displayed remarkable gains given consistent follow-through on sessions, home practice activities, and parental guidance to support learning.
Typically in our program students are closing the gap at significant levels (learning at a faster rate than their non-struggling peers) and often can move back into the average range for reading in 6-12 months.
Having a comprehensive educational evaluation can help us to determine the length of treatment that would likely be necessary for your child and what type of results you can expect.
