Lindamood Phoneme Sequencing® (LiPS®) Program:
Some students are not “reading-ready.” For these students, we start with the Lindamood Phoneme Sequencing® – LiPS® Program for reading, spelling and speech. LiPS® is for students who are missing the pre-reading skill of phonemic awareness (knowing the correct sounds for the correct letters).
Research shows that students who are missing this important skill will not progress with reading until they have mastered it. We determine the need for the LiPS® program through our placement screening process.
The Barton Reading & Spelling System®:
Our team of specialists teach struggling readers and dyslexic students of any age, utilizing the widely acclaimed Barton Reading & Spelling System®, “an Orton-Gillingham influenced, simultaneously multisensory, explicit and systematic phonics system.” Orton-Gillingham based programs are the only research and evidence-based programs proven to teach the struggling reader and dyslexic student to read.
The Barton System provides explicit, systematic instruction in:
- Phonemic awareness
- Vocabulary development
- Reading fluency including oral reading skills
- Reading comprehension strategies
Orton-Gillingham Math Program:
Our highly specialized, multi-sensory Orton-Gillingham math program helps students learn the why of math in an explicit, direct, and multi-sensory manner. This program takes the abstract concepts of math, and with practice, makes them concrete. Not only will you or your student learn the math facts (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division), but also the vocabulary of math, the strategy of solving word problems, time, money, measurement, fractions, percentages, decimals and more. Math concepts are taught at the speed each individual needs.
Writing and Grammar Program:
We offer writing and grammar instruction for elementary school through college on how to write a perfect sentence and paragraph, and the elements of informative/explanatory, argumentative and narrative writing.
We guide students through the writing process from organization and notetaking to constructing complete grammatically correct sentences and paragraphs that adhere to the conventions of writing they will use both in and out of school.
