Reading Remediation Therapy

The Goals

What is Reading Remediation Therapy?

Reading Remediation Therapy, also known as Language-Literacy Therapy or Dyslexia Remediation, is a specialized language-based intervention. Our speech-language pathologists focus on helping children improve in reading, writing, spelling, and reading comprehension to become proficient readers.

At Foundations Therapy, we go beyond traditional teaching methods, incorporating scientific research, individualized strategies, and proven therapy tools to address each child’s unique learning needs. Our comprehensive evaluations identify specific areas of improvement, helping us craft a remediation plan that bridges the gap between your child’s current performance and their potential.

What does a session
look like?

Our Reading Remediation sessions are a dynamic blend of one-on-one instruction by a highly skilled speech-language pathologist using research-based methods tailored to the child’s specific needs. Various multisensory techniques, such as using visual aids, manipulatives, and kinesthetic activities, engage multiple senses and enhance learning and retention.

We also incorporate movement breaks using our therapy gym to keep sessions lively and engaging. With our program, every child gets a chance to learn and grow at their own pace. Learn more about our evaluation.

Why Does Foundations Follow the Orton Gillingham Research?

Orton Gillingham theory is the standard theory which provides evidenced-based principles that guide reading remediation therapy. It focuses on teaching reading through explicit, systematic, and sequential instruction that addresses the underlying reading deficits. It emphasizes repetition, reinforcement, and the use of multi-sensory techniques to enhance learning and memory. Learn more about the Intervention Components Using Orton Gillingham Principles:

Therapy Tool Details

To ensure the effectiveness of our therapy, we employ a variety of proven tools such as:

Barton Reading and Spelling System

This is an Orton-Gillingham based reading and spelling program designed for children who are struggling to develop and learn the skills necessary for fluent reading, spelling, and comprehension.

Variety of Reading Progression Books
Wilson Reading System

This is an intensive reading remediation program for children with reading deficits who are not making sufficient progress as a reader. These children may have been unable to learn with other teaching strategies, and require multisensory language instruction with more intensively structured literacy instruction, due to a language-based learning/reading disability, such as dyslexia.

Lindamood Phoneme Sequencing® Program for Reading, Spelling, and Speech (LiPS®)

The Lindamood Phoneme Sequencing® (LiPS®) program develops phoneme awareness. Students learn to recognize how their mouths produce the sounds of language. This kinesthetic feedback enables them to verify sounds within words and to become self-correcting in reading, spelling, and speech.

Seeing Stars®: Symbol Imagery for Phonological and Orthographic Processing in Reading and Spelling

The Seeing Stars® (SI™) program develops symbol imagery: the ability to visualize sounds and letters in words for both phonological and orthographic processing. Students move through a series of steps – from single consonants/vowels to multisyllabic and contextual reading – to develop the imagery-language connection for competency in written language.

Lindamood-Bell Visualizing and Verbalizing®

This program develops concept imagery—the ability to create a mental image from language (making a movie in your mind). This is the basis for comprehension and higher order thinking. The development of concept imagery improves reading and listening comprehension, memory, oral vocabulary, critical thinking, and writing.

Interactive Metronome®

An assessment and training program developed to directly improve the processing abilities that affect attention, motor planning, and sequencing. IM, in turn, strengthens motor skills, lengthens attention span, and improves processing functions, such as planning, organizing, and language.
