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.
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.
