Vickery has two Literacy / Dyslexia Interventionists on campus, Mrs. Kirby and Ms. Hewett. We provide Dyslexia classes as well as Reading intervention classes and Teacher support.
On this site you’ll find information about dyslexia and links to helpful resources.
LISD provides Language Science classes for students who have an educational identification of dyslexia documented through 504. We use several resources for the curriculum, which include: The Multisensory Teaching Approach (MTA), Instant Word Practice - (Scottish Rite), Poetry-Fluency, Neuhaus Fluency Program, Technology Integration and the Esperanza Program (Spanish curriculum).
The MTA program is based on the Orton-Gillingham model and is a sequential, cumulative curriculum whose primary emphasis is the 85% of the English Language that is phonetically reliable for reading and spelling. There are four major areas of study: alphabet and dictionary skills, reading, spelling, and cursive handwriting.
Research in the field of Dyslexia continues to grow. We are eager to share with you some of the quality websites, which have the most current information.
Thanks for visiting our website. We are excited to work with you and your students!
