The Wilson Reading System directly and systematically teaches students how to fluently and accurately decode. it is unlike traditional phonics programs in that instruction is very interactive and multisensory. It also throroughtly teaches total word construction, not just phonics.

The Yale Center for Dyslexia & Creativity

Making Math Real
Making Math Real is an innovative, fun, hands-on method of learning math that integrates key cognitive development such as symbol imaging, detail analysis, and sequential processing, within every lesson and activity. Students who struggle with math do not lack the intelligence or the motivation to be successful. Typically, they lack the underlying development that supports the acquisition of the basic tools to do math.
