The Wilson Reading System
Reading and spelling program for students with Dyslexia and other language-based learning disabilities
The Wilson Reading System is a structured literacy program based on phonological coding research and Orton-Gillingham principles. The Wilson Reading System (WRS) directly and systematically teaches the structure of the English Language. As students progress through the program, they learn fluent decoding (reading) and encoding (spelling) skills that are taught to mastery.
As a certified Dyslexia Practitioner and Wilson Certified Teacher, it is a sincere passion of mine to empower those with Dyslexia and other language-based learning disabilities. I teach strategies that not only work but are PROVEN to produce successful readers & spellers.

Dyslexia is a specific learning disability that is neurological in origin. It is characterized by difficulties with accurate and/or fluent word recognition and by poor spelling and decoding abilities.
These difficulties typically result from a deficit in the phonological component of language that is often unexpected in relation to other cognitive abilities and the provision of effective classroom instruction. (IDA & NICHD, 2002).
