Specialized Tutoring –
Reading Success Plus opens a tutoring center for struggling readers and students with dyslexia. A first of its kind in West Michigan, Reading Success Plus features specialized tutoring programs including the highly acclaimed Lindamood Phoneme Sequencing (LiPS) program, Barton Reading & Spelling program, as well as the highly-specialized Orton-Gillingham math tutoring. The Orton-Gillingham method has been available since the 1940’s, and teaches students using all learning modalities to imprint reading and math into their long term memory.
Struggling Reader or Dyslexic?
If your student is a struggling reader, they may be dyslexic. Dr. Sally Shaywitz at the Yale Center for Dyslexia and Creativity has found that 80-90% of all individuals identified as having a learning disability are dyslexic. According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Summary Report in 1994, dyslexia is the most common cause of reading difficulties in elementary age school children. Additionally, their research indicates that dyslexia affects at least 20 percent (1 in 5), of our population, with varying degrees of severity. You might be surprised to learn that dyslexia is the most researched of all learning disabilities. Unfortunately, it is also the leading cause of reading failure and school dropouts in our nation. The good news is, with intervention, a person with dyslexia can learn to read!
- Dyslexia is genetic, a parent with dyslexia has a 50/50 chance of having a child with dyslexia.
- Dyslexia makes reading, writing, spelling and sometimes math difficult.
- Students with Dyslexia usually have normal, and oftentimes, high intelligence.
- Many families struggle for years trying a variety of programs to help their child.
