Barton Reading and Spelling SystemOur tutors work one-on-one with their students using the latest and most effective methods to teach them how to read and spell. The core program that we use is the Barton Reading and Spelling System. This is an enhanced version of the Orton-Gillingham system that has been proven effective in government studies.
The Barton System is a multi-sensory approach to teaching dyslexic students. Our students learn reading and spelling in a different manner than most programs in schools. A different method is necessary since memorization is so hard for our students,
The Barton System basically consists of teaching:
• Phonemic awareness
• Which letters correspond to the phonemes
• The seven types of syllables
• Spelling rules
• Roots and affixes
Further instruction is given in reading fluency, reading comprehension, and reading prosody.
These principles are taught through intense, systematic instruction with plenty of practice and repetition. Our tutors are trained to determine the needs of the student and always proceed at each individual student’s own pace. This eliminates the stress of trying to keep up with the rest of the class.

LiPS®If a student is not ready to begin with the Barton System, Dyslexia Reading Connection® has tutors trained in the Lindamood Phoneme Sequencing® Program for Reading Spelling and Speech (LiPS®). This program teaches phonemic awareness by making the student aware of what is happening with his or her mouth, teeth, and lips when a speech sound is produced.
