Reading and Spelling Remediation – Tackling Dyslexic Challenges

Is your child facing a struggle with reading, writing or spelling due to a possible learning disability or dyslexia? At Dyslexic Solutions Ottawa, we’re here to help. 

We provide intensive, one-on-one tutoring for students of all ages who face learning challenges related to reading and spelling. Our goal is to create a positive learning environment, using evidence-based programming, in which students can become competent, self-assured readers and spellers. We are committed to seeing our students thrive and succeed!

We use the proven and scientifically research-based program called the Barton Reading and Spelling System® – based upon Orton-Gillingham methods of instruction. Students benefit from this multi-sensory teaching approach, with tutoring delivered by a professional, trained instructor. You can trust in a high level of methodology and teaching standards, tailored to each student’s individual and unique learning needs. 

This program is recommended by the International Dyslexia Association, and supported as best-practice by more than a dozen independent research studies, conducted by academic and other institutions (to read more about this research, visit here).

Solutions – Closer Than You Think

There is a notable prevalence of reading problems and learning disabilities in today’s schools, yet research clearly shows that 95% of reading problems are preventable. Appropriate, one on one treatment is crucial to their resolution. With this research-based intervention, it is possible for struggling readers to accomplish grade-level abilities.  

Why? Because scientists now understand the general nature of dyslexia – what separates strong readers from struggling readers – and in doing so, have developed highly effective strategies to help individuals with the disorder.
