READING INSTRUCTION

Kingsgate Speech, Language & Reading specializes in helping students who demonstrate difficulty learning to read, write and spell. Reading is a complex language-based skill. Students with reading disability and dyslexia benefit from linguistically explicit instruction that is systematic, integrated and multi-sensory.

Reading instruction really is 'rocket science' and requires teaching by well-trained, experienced teachers who can analyze instruction, monitor progress, and provide effective treatment that leads to the student’s success in learning to read.

Effective teaching involves:

  • Phonology and Phonemic Awareness (processing the sound system in language)
  • Alphabet Knowledge
  • Letter/Sound Correspondence
  • Syllable Instruction
  • Exposure to Sight Words and Irregular Words
  • Morphology
  • Syntax
  • Vocabulary
  • Spelling
  • Fluency & Accurate and Automatic Word Recognition
  • Strategies for Decoding Longer (multisyllabic) Words
  • Written Composition
  • Reading Comprehension Strategies
