Welcome to the

ReadWrite Center

 

We provide specialized Orton-Gillingham based academic language therapy services using explicit, systematic, sequential, and multisensory language-based programs for children and adults with dyslexia and other language-based reading, spelling, and writing difficulties. We provide support and information on dyslexia and related disorders to promote understanding, education, and success for each student. We work with students in both individual and small group settings based on the student's individual needs.

What is the difference between academic language therapy and tutoring services?

Academic language therapy is provided by a certified academic language therapist. It is an intensive remedial reading approach that begins instruction with basic skills and builds the learning continuum step-by-step for the dyslexic or reading disabled student. Individualized programs of academic language therapy are designed to meet the needs of those with dyslexia and other language-based learning disorders of reading, writing, and spelling. The instruction components include: phonological awareness, alphabetic principle, vocabulary development, reading (decoding, fluency and comprehension), spelling, cursive handwriting, written expression, and listening comprehension.

Tutoring is a support service that assists the student in specific areas of a subject or curriculum with which he or she may be having difficulty. Tutoring supports the student in meeting basic study skills. It involves instruction in subject content and/or in the total curriculum by a private instructor who works with the individual student or with a small group. The focus generally is directed toward completing a curriculum or a specific area of work.

When is Academic Language Therapy needed?

Written language is arguably the most important tool in traditional education. People who are having difficulty learning to read and write despite having normal and even exceptional intelligence and sufficient opportunity to learn may benefit from academic language therapy.
