Tutoring

The National Institute of Health has determined that the teaching methods that are multi-sensory and cumulative, with systematic and explicit instruction in phonemic awareness, phonics, reading fluency, vocabulary, and reading comprehension are most successful in improving reading.

There are many successful programs that utilize these methods:

  • Orton-Gillingham
  • The Wilson System
  • Language!
  • Barton Reading & Spelling
  • Slingerland System
