All About Reading Program
All About Reading is a fun and engaging program that has everything your child needs to become a fluent reader for life!
This is an Orton-Gillingham based program that uses a multi-sensory approach to reading. There are no gaps in this program.
Your child will be taught everything he or she needs to know about reading, so no guessing is required.
Each new concept builds upon the previous one, and no steps are skipped. There are five key components of reading—and
this program teaches all of them thoroughly. These five components are:
- Phonological Awareness
- Phonics and Decoding
All About Reading consists of Pre-reading and Levels 1-4. It teaches all key components of reading in a fun and engaging way.
Your child will be given a quick placement test to see which level is best for them.
All About Spelling Program
All About Spelling is a seven level program. Based on the latest research, this award-winning program provides complete and
comprehensive instruction using the Orton-Gillingham approach. Powerful teaching methods are at the center of All About Spelling.
- Multi-sensory approach makes it easy for kids to understand.
- Built-in review system helps learning stick.
- Kids look forward to spelling lessons because of the motivating, hands-on activities.
- This mastery-based, building block program works with kids who have learning disabilities as well as those who do not.
Your child will be given a quick placement test to see which level is best for them; however All About Spelling is a building block program–each
level builds upon the previous one. The rules and concepts learned in Level 1 are applied in Level 2, and then those are applied in Level 3,
and so on. For this reason, we recommend that most children start with Level 1. Since AAS is mastery-based, the level numbers do not
correspond to grade levels. For example, Level 1 doesn't have to be completed in first grade.
The Intensive Phonological Awareness Program
"The Intensive Phonological Awareness Program (IPA) is a systematic, comprehensive, and intensive small group intervention designed for
kindergarten and first-grade children who have minimal or no phonological awareness ability. It builds a foundation of phonological
awareness critical for developing initial proficiency in decoding and spelling." This program is combined with the All About Reading Program,
creating an intensive and individualized program for each child.
