• Intervention for dyslexia directly, explicitly and systematically teaches an awareness of the sounds of language, letter-sound associations, vocabulary and strategies for understanding written language. Guided, repeated practice enables the child to apply what they have learned efficiently. Intensity (e.g. smaller group size, extended length of sessions and treatment, more individualized lessons) is what distinguishes dyslexia intervention from regular reading instruction. Take Flight: A Comprehensive Intervention for Students with Dyslexia is the most recent treatment developed by the Luke Waites Center for Dyslexia and Learning Disorders.

    Because the intervention is a type of therapy, it is imperative students participate as directed within the program. All components of the lesson are researched based and serve a purpose for the student(s). Failure to comply with the activities within the program could lead to an unsatisfactory outcome to the therapy. 

    Classroom behavior and participation greatly impacts the delivery of the lesson and the retention of information. Students who do not follow classroom rules and/or procedures negatively impact the learning not only for themselves, but those around them.

    1. Bring folder and classwork/homework
