We use the Wilson Reading Program to guide our students learning.
We have chosen Wilson Reading System (WRS) because it has proven time and time again to help struggling readers become successful. Based on Orton-Gillingham principles, WRS is a highly-structured remedial program that directly teaches the structure of the language to students and adults who have been unable to learn with other teaching strategies, or who may require multisensory language instruction.
The program is appropriate for students in the 2nd grade and beyond. WRS is widely used with notable success in public and private schools, clinics, adult education classes, family literacy programs, and correctional facilities. With its success in so many different settings, it is a perfect fit for tutoring in small groups and one-on-one. It is a step-by-step program that gives us the additional tools to work with even the most challenged reader.
