Anyone use the Wilson reading method?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
THe recent therapist we have taken ds to said ds has "features of orthographic dyslexia". I found a link through the schwablearning.com website for dyslexia and it seems to fit my ds. The therapist has recommended the Wilson Reading method. Has anyone here used this before?

Thanks for any help.

I've heard of it, but know absolutely nothing about it. Please feel free to share. It's heartbreaking that both the teacher and my son think that his reading is a weak point. Because I was always an avid, good reader, and when he reads, I think he does well. I guess just not well enough.

Yes, it is very good as a multisensory way to learn to rad. My friends son is taught by it. We have parent volunteers at my sons school training to help readers that may be dyslexic (like my son may be ..... he is currently being evaluated).

What can you tell me about orthographic dyslexia? I tried to google it, but am having a very hard time wallowing thru the mire.

I am currently a Wilson teacher. I work with the most "at promise" first grade students in my building. I would be happy to answer any question you might have concerning Wilson Reading. It has been very successful with my students.

I am a Special Ed teacher and would like to know something about the training of the Wilson method. My principal told me that she will start the program.  Pat Gerard

It is an excellent program. If your school uses it ask if it is a modified program or the full program.  When I interned the school I was at had a modified program.  The other school had the full version with a certified Wilson Instructor.  The kids did much better with the certified Wilson Instructor.

 

If your school doesn't have a program you can try to find someone seeking certification in the program.  It is hard to find candidates who have not had Wilson training of any kind.  It would require that your child go with the instructor for observation several times.  Usually services can be traded.  So you could get the training for free if you allow your child to be observed.  Most people seeking certification are all ready teachers.  You can also call Wilson for a certified instructor near you.
