The critical window for language learning comes before reading acquisition. Recent research indicates that early recognition and remediation for children at risk is the key to long-term educational success. We must insure that all children enter school ready to read. By starting early, we recognize learning to read begins long before a child enters school.
Our early intervention program uses multisensory techniques to focus on the key components of learning to read. We focus on pre-reading skills such as letter recognition, sound letter association and phonemic awareness. In addition, other skills proved to develop fluency such as rhyming, rapid naming and repetition are taught to students. We also work on developing a beginning sight word vocabulary.
