Summit Reading Center offers various multi-sensory programs to help students with dyslexia and other language-based learning challenges. We provide individualized instruction to students of all ages in the areas of reading, spelling, language comprehension, writing, vocabulary, and math. After an initial evaluation, a program is designed to meet the specific needs of each student.
Our programs reach beyond traditional content tutoring and focus on basic processing skills. Several years of progress can be seen in as little as six weeks with intensive instruction.
The following are several of the programs offered at Summit Reading Center...
The LiPS® program - The Lindamood Phoneme Sequencing Program®, a multi-sensory approach to language, provides students with new tools for perceiving the identity, number, and order of sounds within words. The program teaches students to rely on the way sounds feel inside their mouths in order to overcome deficiencies in phonemic awareness.
The Seeing Stars® program is designed to stimulate symbol imagery, or the ability to visualize letters both in isolation and in words. This skill is essential for learning to recognize sight words that are difficult to sound out. Strong imagery also helps students improve their rate and fluency when reading in context. The Seeing Stars® program teaches students to create a mental picture for letters and identify the corresponding sounds, building from single to multi-syllable words.
The Visualizing and Verbalizing® program systematically teaches individuals to first create mental pictures from language, then to recall, organize and verbalize the information visualized. The goal is to provide students with the tools to develop vocabulary, comprehend written and oral language, express themselves concisely, and to think critically.
Through a multi-sensory approach, students learn their math facts, rules, and formulas, and are able to use this knowledge in real life applications. Most students who are struggling in the area of math are most often missing basic foundational math knowledge. In order to determine the needs of each student, an initial evaluation is administered and an individual program is designed accordingly.
