Treatment

We use research-proven multi-sensory strategies incorporating the visual, auditory, and kinesthetic senses to promote learning. We utilize your child’s homework in the treatment process, which allows for receiving treatment and getting your homework done at the same time.

Online Tutoring

Our tutors will work with your child one-on-one and in real-time. All of the readings and activities are done just as they would be in an in-person lesson. Tutors will interact with the students, mark pages, move tiles, and type words and sentences.

About Dyslexia
MORE THAN JUST A READING DISORDER

Dyslexia is actually a problem with the processing of language; kids have difficulty processing the sequence of sounds that comprise spoken words. Consequently, you get words like “psghetti” and “amninal.” Interesting, these kiddos genuinely don’t ‘hear’ themselves saying the words incorrectly so it’s difficult for them to self-correct.

THE FOUNDATION OF TREATMENT

All of the effective strategies are based on a ‘multi-sensory’ approach that incorporates, in the learning process, visual, auditory, and kinesthetic. A child may be shown the word, asked to say the word, hear it spoken by the teacher, write the word on paper, and write the word or letter (using a finger) on a rough surface.
