Reading Intervention might be appropriate if your child is able to read but complains about reading - makes statements like “I hate to read” or “it’s too hard” - or otherwise demonstrates resistance to reading.
Some thoughts about our approach:
Silent reading comprehension at all levels of text difficulty requires three abilities: word identification, language comprehension, and print processing (beyond word identification).
At Dynamic Therapy Specialists, LLC we examine all THREE areas required for silent reading comprehension in order to determine the child’s area of greatest weakness which is preventing the child from reading successfully at the next grade level. With this information, we use a variety of strategies and research based therapies to address reading comprehension targeting the area of greatest weakness. This method of assessment and intervention planning often results in progress that is above and beyond improvements noted with traditional therapies.
We employ a variety of programs at our clinic that include, but are not limited to: Whole To Part Method (described above), Alphabetic Phonics, Lindamood Bell (Seeing Stars, Visualizing and Verbalizing, and LiPs), and SPELL-2, to address reading difficulties. Each student is assessed and an appropriate program is individualized based on the assessment findings and team’s shared goals.
