We have a son with Autism; he was in school here in
Well, after he started school in NM we found out about the Wilson Reading Method through a family member who is a Special Education teacher. He started the program at school and a home with a tutor. WOW, viola!!! He began to read, I mean really read and understand. He is now 15 and reading almost at a 4th grade level. Hopefully, some day he will be reading at the level that he should be at for his age. But, even a 4th grade level is a lot better than nothing at all.
Here are some links that I have found for the Wilson Reading Method. I just learned that it is used for dyslexia, poor spellers, ESL (English as Second Language) students among others.
- Wilson Language Training
- LD Online – this is a really good website for all kinds of info and lots of LD’s
- IDA Discussion Forum – From “The International Dyslexia Association”
I will add more links as I find them. Hope this is helpful =)
