We provide a range of Services. Numerous workshops are conducted at schools or at READ
Once a child has been
diagnosed, he/she is plugged for remediation on a one-to-one basis. The tutor
then chalks out a lesson plan based on the child’s weaknesses and strengths.
The lesson targets on building up the child’s skills and concepts; therefore it
is incremental and the pacing is based on the child’s abilities rather than
what is expected of him/her. It is therefore a bottom up approach, using the
child’s strength to overcome his/her weakness.
Remediation takes time
and a lot of drill work is done before the child is able learn anything.
Since dyslexic children do not respond to
conventional language learning instructions, R.E.A.Dyslexics has designed a
comprehensive tutorial-based program that is especially tailored to suit the
needs of a particular child. At R.E.A.Dyslexics, three leading language
learning (remedial) programs have been integrated over the years to form the
READ PROGRAM . It is a blend of two US-¬based programs, the Orton-Gillingham
and the Harvard Laboratory, and the British Hickey Program. Besides addressing
the academic aspects, it relies on the therapeutic tutor/pupil rapport. It also
develops the child’s personality resulting in improved self-esteem,
self-confidence and self-directed learning.
This is conducted by Remedial Therapists. It comprises of a set of Standardized Tests that cover all the key aspects of language acquisition. The results enable the assessor to recognize the pupil’s areas of strengths and weaknesses, forming the basis of a suitable remedial program.
The READ Diploma Course is a four month practical internship for training as remedial teachers, which also provides them with a solid background of theoretical knowledge. It enables them to apply this knowledge to the screening/assessment and teaching of children with language learning difficulties, associated with dyslexia and other types of learning disorders. It also aims at developing a sound understanding of the principles and practices of teaching, and management of students disadvantaged by the above mentioned difficulties.
The READ Diploma course has now been modified to focus more on practical training together with continuing theoretical reinforcement.
consists of four months of training and thirty-six hours of teaching. After a
month and a half down the course, the trainees, will test a child to figure out
an entry point and, based on his/her strengths and weaknesses, develop a lesson
plan for the child.
testing will be done under the supervision of the concerned course leader. Each
student’s teaching will be monitored and she will be guided with the kind of
teaching strategies required by the child. Theoretical knowledge will be
imparted to match the kind of practical teaching being carried out by the
trainee. The trainees will be graded on each component that they have mastered.
This is the first step to find out why a child is facing issues with his/her literacy skills. The screening process includes:
