Encompass launches proven program to help struggling readers.
To help children for whom reading is a struggle, Encompass has launched a proven, one-on-one program called “Wired For Reading.”
This evidence-based linguistics program focuses on reading, spelling and vocabulary. Its multi-sensory, systematic approach has a strong record of success for struggling readers, and its engaging exploration of the architecture of English benefits all learners.
Teaching “Wired For Reading” at Encompass is Megan Soden, a home visitor with the Encompass Parent-Child Home Program and a certified K-8 teacher with long teaching experience who has completed advanced training in the program.
“Wired For Reading” is designed for children in first through fifth grades. To participate, children need to know the letters of the alphabet and the sounds associated with them.
Children who have been diagnosed with dyslexia or other language learning disabilities are excellent candidates, but children do not need to be diagnosed with dyslexia or any other learning disability to participate.
Sessions are held on Friday afternoons at Encompass Downtown North Bend, 209 Main Ave. S., and last 50 minutes unless the child is very young and needs a shorter, 30-minute session. It is recommended that parents participate in the sessions so that they can carry over the learning at home. As the Friday sessions fill up, the program will be offered on other days.
