SMALL GROUP READING INSTRUCTION

Literacy Without Limits offers Tier 2 and Tier 3 small group reading instruction. Currently, there are 2 options available:

 

Option 1: For Students in Kindergarten and First Grade

The curriculum focuses on the 5 elements of effective reading instruction: phonemic awareness, explicit instruction in letter-sound relationships, decoding, comprehension, and fluency. 

 

Option 2: For Students in Second Grade and Above

Based on the students' unique reading profiles and assessment data, Literacy Without Limits will select the appropriate reading intervention program. All programs incorporate the 5 elements of effective reading instruction: phonemic awareness, explicit instruction in letter-sound relationships, decoding, comprehension, and fluency. 

Currently, small group reading instruction is offered on a contractual basis to schools in the D.C. area during the academic year and summer. 

ACADEMIC THERAPY

Academic therapy is a Tier 3 reading intervention for children with moderate to severe dyslexia/reading disabilities. Academic therapy rebuilds a child's foundation in reading and spelling. We use  Sounds in Syllables, an Orton-Gillingham based, multisensory curriculum. Children receive instruction in:

  • phonemic awareness - the ability to hear and manipulate sounds

  • the letter-sound relationship - the sounds that letters make

  • decoding - applying knowledge of letter-sound relationships to print

  • comprehension - understanding what is read

  • fluency - reading accurately and with expression

  • spelling - applying knowledge of letter-sound relationships to spell words

Sessions take place 3-4 times a week for 50 minutes. Academic therapy requires a long-term commitment.
