A diagnosis of dyslexia can feel daunting. We recognize that navigating supports and accommodations for your child can feel overwhelming. But, our in-depth knowledge of this learning difference and its superpowers can unlock your child’s potential and help them find their wings.
Developed by experts at the Luke Waites Center for Dyslexia and Learning Disorders at Scottish Rite for Children, Take Flight is a comprehensive intervention for students with dyslexia.
Dyslexia should not be framed as a disorder, noting that those with this type of wiring actually have enhanced abilities in discovery, invention, and creativity.
- Through the use of a comprehensive, ungraded but structured and sequential curriculum, therapists utilize multi-sensory techniques for instruction in reading, writing, and spelling.
- It is specifically designed to be used by dyslexia therapists who work with children seven years and older who have been diagnosed with developmental dyslexia.
- The focus of this comprehensive program is to help these students achieve and maintain better word recognition, reading fluency, reading comprehension and aid in the transition from a therapy setting to “real world” learning.
"I’ve spent forty-six years in education, and I still marvel at the magic of the Take Flight program. It's a game changer for dyslexic students."
Dr. Debi Sass, Director of the Winston Language Lab
