This is a resource book by Carol S. Fitzpatrick, MS Ed, for classroom teachers wanting to help students with dyslexia and other learning disabilities succeed. There are several chapters demonstrating how to use a Response to Intervention (RtI), or a Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) approach to target the literacy needs of the students struggling with reading, spelling, and writing. It is filled with simple, effective, Orton-Gillingham-based methods that are research-based and classroom-tested. It covers how to motivate a struggler as well as how to teach:
- Phonemic Awareness
- Phonics (Alphabetic Principles)
- Decoding Multi-syllable Words
- and Writing.
