The missing piece to the puzzle
in reading instruction:
"teach their way!"
Consulting ~ Academic Support ~ Coaching
Children & Adults with reading challenges are unique! Each presents with specific gaps on the reading continuum that need to be addressed individually. To overcome learning problems, we help students see that learning difficulty just means learning differently. We don't believe in conformity but creativity- creative ways to work around deficiencies and build skills in doing so!
A specialized program for all kinds of reading challenges
MyWay2-READ is Success4School's specialized reading program for children and students with reading difficulties and those just struggling with reading concepts. Our diagnosticians build a reading program for every student. They are not pre-made. however, we can look at reading challenges in two different ways, which helps pinpoint the type of philosophy or way to teach reading to that student- so it actually sticks with them.
What are reading difficulties versus just struggling in reading or language arts?
We go beyond tutoring. If your child presents as one who is STRUGGLING or not understanding reading concepts in class, like author's purpose or demonstrates difficulties with reading comprehension and answering questions- your child's sessions can be tailored to just that. Our academic coaches can work cross-curricular to ensure your child understands how to nail questions, read more closely, and be engaged in the process of reading- so those scores soar-and so will reading understanding. If your child is not yet reading to learn- and truly demonstrates deficiencies with phonological processing, Memory issues, reading disabilities, or Dyslexia or is an ELL/ESL learner, then they have a reading DIFFICULTY. Each requires a different approach.
How does Success4School address a struggling reader?
If your child is struggling with straight comprehension, reading closely, analyzing text, understanding what he or she reads, or reading fluently- our blended program using technology driven activities, plus guided strategic reading instruction by our specialists one on one, bring real results you can see across all subjects and fast! We use leveled text to increase comprehension strategies, as well as best practice instruction in applying strategies before, during, and after reading- to increase growth in comprehension, the ability to think critically and infer, as well as develop the core English-Language Arts concepts (like author's tone or purpose, theme, etc.) with which many struggling readers are challenged.

How do you address reading difficulties?
Multi-sensory, explicit, systematic corrective reading instruction is an alternative approach to teaching reading, writing, and spelling. It is based on the research of Dr. Samuel Orton, Bessie Stillman, and Anna Gillingham, who through their research and work, became advocates for structured multi sensory teaching in the 1930's. Their work has stood the test of time and has become the gold standard for correcting reading issues with children with dyslexia and other reading disabilities, as well as those children for whom traditional reading instruction has not proved successful in reaching them. If your child has reading difficulties, it is likely there is a reason for that beyond pace or teacher chosen teaching methods in the classroom, like a struggling reader. Corrective reading is the best approach for a student with a reading difficulty. Corrective reading addresses dyslexia, reading disabilities, phonological processing issues, etc. It is structured and systematic! At Success4Schoool the two programs we use for corrective reading are the Wilson Reading Method or the Angling Reading Method, both of which are multi-sensory and considered OG or based on the work of Orton-Gillingham. They are recommended by thousands of neuropsychologists, educational specialists and reading instructors in the US and abroad. They are THE programs to use to teach the Orton Gillingham method and finally help children improve their reading.

Appropriate for students grades 2-12, but can be started with younger students if necessary. Adults can also be placed in the program, but typically progress faster than some children. Instruction is delivered, on average, 3-5 times per week for 45 minutes in 1:1 instruction, reducing to 2-3x week once step 4 of 12 has been mastered. However, recommendations specific to your child will be made after the initial consultation.
