Programs that I will be using:
Foundations in Sounds© – for students not yet ready to begin the Barton Reading and Spelling program due to weakness in auditory discrimination, auditory memory capacity and auditory sequencing skills.
LiPS©– The LiPS program teaches students to discover and label the 44 phonemes in the English language. Students can then verify the identity, number, sequence, and manipulate the sounds in words. Phonemic awareness is then applied to daily reading and spelling.
Barton – Reading and Spelling Systems©– for students with dyslexia. The Barton program is Orton-Gillingham based and uses simultaneous multi-sensory instruction. Each student follows a specific sequence of steps that is tailored to their unique learning style.
Visualizing and Verbalizing© – The V/V program develops concept imagery—the ability to create an imagined or imaged gestalt (mental picture) from language—as a basis for comprehension and higher order thinking. The development of concept imagery improves reading and listening comprehension, memory, oral vocabulary, critical thinking, and writing.
