Reading, Writing, Spelling & Math
Students often need help in reading, writing, spelling or math for a variety of reasons, whether school is too challenging, you missed a concept and fell behind, or you just want to improve your skills. Lexicon uses evidence-based methods and programs to address difficulties with reading, writing, spelling, comprehension, vocabulary, grammar, and anything else he/she might need. A diagnosis is not required to receive this instruction at Lexicon.
Identifying the source of your student’s struggle is the first step toward building life- long skills. With dyslexia, early detection is possible, and often key to future success. Dyslexia affects 1 in 5 individuals, is genetic, and can be remediated with appropriate tutoring or instruction. Even if dyslexia is not a concern and you do not see warning signs, Lexicon is equipped to help students of all reading and spelling abilities whether they have dyslexia or not. Please give us a call to see if screening is the right option for you.
Multi-sensory teaching involves simultaneous use of three pathways to enhance memory and learning. Links are consistently made between the visual (what we see), auditory (what we hear), and kinesthetic-tactile (what we feel) pathways in learning to read and spell.
Children with reading differences often exhibit weaknesses in auditory and/or visual processing. They may have weak phonemic awareness, meaning they are unaware of the individual sounds in words. They may have difficulty rhyming words, manipulating words, or blending sounds to make words. They may also have difficulty acquiring a sufficient sight vocabulary. In general, they do not pick up the alphabetic code or system.
Different programs follow different schedules. In general, the more time devoted to learning, the faster you will see results. The recommended minimum is 2 hours per week of individualized instruction.
Determining your student’s strengths and weaknesses is the first step in resolving speech, language, and reading delays. A comprehensive evaluation can help you make an informed decision about pursuing therapy for your student. We offer evaluations customized to the child that provide an overall look at their abilities. Assessments help us determine the most appropriate way to help your child in therapy, at home, socially, and academically.
