Our original goal was to develop a program for students with developmental reading disorders, also known as dyslexia, and to target the reading and spelling level rather than the age or grade level of the student. LTK benefits program is not limited to students with diagnosed learning difficulties.
You are challenged with the task of providing remedial reading instruction to one or more students. Each student currently reads at a different grade level, and each has his or her own level of proficiency in learning the basic skills of reading. If you have been fortunate enough to have been trained in the Orton-Gillingham method.
Students who face the world with learning disabilities, such as dyslexia, typically have higher than average IQ levels. Thus, they develop “coping strategies”. For example, they may be able to recognize the shape of words and memorize them. The best they can achieve is a fourth or fifth-grade reading level.
