SpellRead - Proven intervention for your most struggling readers
Foundations for Learning is the only learning center in Europe that is licensed to offer this reading support program from North America.
Designed for struggling readers in grades 2 – 12 (age 7 – 18), including students two or more years behind in reading, special needs students and English language learners, SpellRead makes a difference and helps students to become confident readers.
The Problem: A Broken Foundation
If the phonological coding system isn’t mastered to a level where it is automatic, then there is no strong foundation for reading in all content areas. Students become overwhelmed and fall further and further behind. SpellRead can end this cycle.
SpellRead’s research-based, multisensory approach bridges a student’s sound system and oral language to build automaticity and trains the brain to process language efficiently as it is read, to facilitate understanding. SpellRead builds the skills students need to improve overall comprehension, so that they can move on to more complex texts in all content areas.
By the end of the program, students are able to decode any grade level text automatically and can focus their energy on getting meaning from the text.
Specifically, students can:
- demonstrate mastery of the sound system
- attack unfamiliar words easily
- read with fluency and comprehension
Foundations for Learning offers the SpellRead program to individual students or small groups. For more information, please contact us.
