What To Expect From Dyslexia Therapy at Dyslexia on Demand

When you are seeking help for a student with dyslexia, there are a few routes you can take, including tutoring or therapy. Dyslexia tutoring is an approach that tends to focus on academic goals like improving reading comprehension; tutoring usually complements the skills that a student is learning in school. While tutoring may incorporate a variety of methods, it often doesn’t address the core processing difficulties that occur with dyslexia. In addition, tutoring can be conducted by tutors or teachers that have general teaching experience. In contrast to tutoring, dyslexia therapy stands out as a more comprehensive and intensive approach to helping students with dyslexia. Dyslexia on Demand has created a supportive, successful environment for students, families, and professionals to collaborate and help students with dyslexia to succeed. Read on to learn more about what to expect from dyslexia therapy at Dyslexia on Demand. 

Therapy zooms in on the causes of dyslexia. Dyslexia therapy aims at addressing the root causes of dyslexia. Some of these causes might include a student’s difficulties with phonological processing. Dyslexia therapy works to improve these skills in addition to developing new strategies for students to use for reading, writing, and spelling. 

Sessions occur with high frequency. Typically, tutoring sessions for dyslexia happen about once a week. Dyslexia therapy is more intense and more frequent. At Dyslexia on Demand, students attend multiple sessions per week over a sustained period of time. Our typical time commitment for student therapy sessions is 4 hours per week. Research shows that this approach helps to achieve results most efficiently. The amount of time and the number of exposures students have to dyslexia therapy helps to create new neural pathways in students’ brains. 

It’s rooted in research. Dyslexia on Demand therapy uses specialized, multisensory techniques that incorporate visual, auditory, and kinesthetic approaches to learning, which have proven to be most effective. Programs are based on the tried and true Orton-Gillingham methods, which are the gold standard for dyslexia therapy; there’s a focus on structured literacy that is founded in the science of reading. 

Skilled professionals administer therapy sessions. The experts at Dyslexia on Demand are not your average tutors; Dyslexia on Demand’s dyslexia therapy program uses Certified Academic Language Therapists (CALTs). These highly educated, specially certified CALTs are qualified to implement therapeutic grade Orton-Gillingham based dyslexia intervention: the Take Flight program, among others depending on the needs of the student. 

Take a closer look at Take Flight. Take Flight is a comprehensive intervention that includes a two-year curriculum. This curriculum was written by dyslexia experts and has been designed for children with dyslexia who are ages seven and older. This program was developed to help students with dyslexia not only achieve and maintain better word recognition, reading fluency, and reading comprehension, but to help students with the transition from the dyslexia therapy setting to the real world. 

Measurements of progress help guide your student. At Dyslexia on Demand, we take data seriously. In a therapeutic environment, paying attention to data is key. We use both formal and informal measures of data collection quite frequently. This helps with decision-making for your student’s personalized dyslexia therapy path; using each student’s data, we work to create individual intervention strategies for each student’s unique dyslexia challenges. 

Deeper than dyslexia. At Dyslexia on Demand, we recognize that we are treating a whole person through dyslexia therapy. While our programs are designed to help students overcome academic challenges, we also focus on developing other qualities like responsibility, independence, and self-advocacy. 

Convenience and consistency are key. Virtual therapy has been found to be just as effective as in-person therapy, and in fact, the convenience and consistency that Dyslexia on Demand offers is just another way that helps to set students up for success. Accessibility and flexibility of scheduling are great aspects of Dyslexia on Demand. In addition, we have discovered that dyslexia therapy is so powerful when it is individualized and done one-on-one with the same therapist. At Dyslexia on Demand, we aim to have students work consistently with the same CALT for their sessions.
