School-aged students who struggle with literacy due to dyslexia and other learning disabilities can take advantage of screening and tutoring services offered by Sara Kwiatt, M.Ed., Meghan Barlow and Associates’ Wilson Certified Dyslexia Practitioner. Sara uses The Wilson Reading System® (WRS), which is a structured literacy program based on phonological-coding research and Orton-Gillingham principles to systematically teach the structure of the English language. Through the program, students learn fluent decoding and encoding skills to the level of mastery. From the beginning steps of the program, students receive instruction in:
- Phonemic awareness
- Decoding and word study
- Sight word recognition
- Oral expressive language development
About The Wilson Reading System (WRS)
As described on the Wilson Reading Instruction website, The Wilson Reading System (WRS) is the flagship program of Wilson Language Training® and the foundation of all other Wilson programs. WRS is an intensive Tier 3 program for students in grades 2-12 and adults with word-level deficits who are not making sufficient progress through their current intervention; have been unable to learn with other teaching strategies and require multi-sensory language instruction; or who require more intensive structured literacy instruction due to a language-based learning disability, such as dyslexia.”
Students may enroll in tutoring after completing a one-hour intake session that uses the Wilson Screening Tool to identify your child’s strengths and weaknesses. To schedule an intake session, contact our office at (440) 409-0307. Intake session cost is $30.
1:1 tutoring sessions are one hour long and typically take place once or twice per week. Session cost is $60 per hour and includes all materials as well as regular progress notes.
