Reading Intervention:

child-reading-therapyWhy does my child struggle to read? Well there are two ways to answer this question. While some kids may struggle with a disability that makes reading difficult to learn, many children may struggle due to inadequate reading instruction. At ITS, our mission is to utilize an individualized phonic approach to reading with a focus on the 5 core components of reading: phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension.

All children can learn to read, as parents and professionals it is our goal to ensure that we utilize the appropriate interventions to address the needs of the children we serve.

  • Phonemic awareness (ability to focus on and manipulate individual sounds in spoken words)
  • Phonics (understanding letter/sound correspondence)
  • Fluency
  • Vocabulary
  • Comprehension

These five components need to be combined with systematic instruction (skills and concepts are taught in a logically progressive sequence), explicit instruction (stating clearly what is being taught and modeling effectively how the skill is used), and multisensory instruction (incorporating auditory, visual, tactile, and kinesthetic instruction).
