What we do!

Take Flight Students:

Therapist will address the five components of effective reading instruction identified by the National Reading Panel's research and is a comprehensive Tier III intervention for students with dyslexia.
*Phonemic Awareness - following established procedures for explicitly teaching the relationships between speech-sound production and spelling-sound patterns
*Phonics - providing a systematic approach for single word decoding
*Fluency - using research-proven directed practice in repeated reading of words, phrases and passages to help students read newly encountered text more fluently
*Vocabulary - featuring multiple word learning strategies (definitional, structural, contextual) and explicit teaching techniques with application in text
*Reading Comprehension - teaching students to explicitly use and articulate multiple comprehension strategies (i.e., cooperative learning, story structure, question generation and answering, summarization and comprehension monitoring)
 
Our Lexia Students:
Therapist or Reading Specialist use Lexia Reading Core5 supports in providing differentiated literacy instruction for students of all abilities in grades pre-K–5. Lexia’s research-proven program provides explicit, systematic, personalized learning in the six areas of reading instruction, targeting skill gaps as they emerge, and providing teachers with the data and student-specific resources they need for individual or small-group instruction.


Intermediate/Middle/High School Students:

Students will work on rate and fluency to build speed and accuracy when reading grade appropriate text. Developing fluent reading skills will improve comprehension and understanding of the text.

Therapist will also address reading skills to include, but are not limited to, in order to build foundations: reading comprehension, cause and effect, character analysis, point of view, drawing conclusions, context clues, inferences and main idea.
