Reading intervention

Why might my child need reading intervention or remediation?

Structured, multisensory instruction is crucial for beginning readers and those who have been diagnosed with language-based learning differences such as dyslexia.

Why choose On-Track Tutoring for my struggling reader?

In the world of reading intervention, most programs are founded on the principles of the Orton-Gillingham Approach. Through the evolution of time and research into the science of reading, more evidence-based interventions have come into the educational marketplace with each having its unique approach. Just like with our JGS students, we choose the approach that is best for each child.

Multisensory Reading Programs

Through years of reviewing research and using many of the Orton-Gillingham-based programs, we have determined that the Wilson Reading System® (WRS) and Lindamood-Bell programs most closely align with our philosophy of teaching and learning, and have shown the best outcomes.

Wilson Language Training®

Wilson is a provider of research-based reading and spelling programs for all ages. Barbara Wilson, the founder of Wilson Language Training (WLT), recognizes the need for intense,  continuous teacher training in order to maintain professional standards and implement the programs with fidelity. We have found the Wilson Reading System® (WRS), and the professional learning certifications associated with it, to be most teacher and student-friendly with lots of “kid appeal”. On-Track’s “Wilson tutors” have received advanced WRS training and many are WRS Level II certified.

Lindamood-Bell

Lindamood-Bell programs develop the sensory-cognitive processes that underlie reading and comprehension. The Lindamood-Bell Visualizing and Verbalizing® Program has been heavily researched to be one of the best for improving reading comprehension, and, as such, is one of our “go-to” methodologies. The Lindamood Phoneme Sequencing® Program for Reading, Spelling, and Speech (LiPS®) is essential for students who have been diagnosed with phonological dyslexia. This unique multisensory approach helps with reading, speech & spelling for students requiring this type of intervention.
