The Wilson Reading System targets students in grades 2nd through 12th as well as adults. WRS works to remediate students with word level deficits whose current method of intervention is having little to no impact on reading and writing.
Each Wilson lesson is composed of ten parts that enable students to become fluent decoders and encoders. Each lesson focuses on direct instruction in phonemic awareness, decoding, word study, sight words, spelling, fluency, vocabulary, oral expressive language, and comprehension.
Through the use of the Wilson Reading System, we can empower students to decode, encode, read, create, and understand the written word. The Wilson Reading System is based on the Orton Gillingham approach. This approach is used to help students master the decoding and encoding of all six syllable types in a systematic, multisensory approach.
Each student is able to progress through the program at his/her own pace. Students are instructed individually so that they can gain mastery prior to moving on to the next concept. This type of support is next to impossible to deliver in a school setting as the teacher has to move through lessons in order to deliver the entire curriculum to all children regardless of mastery levels.
"If you have kids who are struggling with dyslexia, the greatest gift you can give them is the sense that nothing is unattainable. With dyslexia comes a very great gift, which is the way that your mind can think creatively.”
