Hamilton, NJ, December 09, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- The International Dyslexia Association (IDA) recently accredited the Wilson Language Reading Program and all of its partners, including The Newgrange School. The IDA announced the accreditations at its annual national convention in Grapevine, Texas.
This accreditation will give the Wilson Language Reading Program and all of its partners, including The Newgrange School, access to teacher preparation resources and information on the latest strategies for positively impacting literacy achievement for all students struggling with dyslexia. The IDA has also officially recognized the success of the Wilson Language Training strategies.
"We are so excited about IDA accreditation," said Gordon F. Sherman, Ph.D., executive director of The Newgrange School. "Dyslexia is a brain-based learning disability. We have been helping students overcome this obstacle for quite some time, and we are proud that our multi-sensory approach is receiving official recognition."
Wilson Language Training is comprised of four stages: prevention, early intervention, intervention and intensive. The first three stages are used in Newgrange classrooms to develop literacy and reading skills. Prevention focuses on building a solid foundation for students in kindergarten through third grade. Early intervention is designed to provide extra support for students of the same age but in the lowest 30th percentile. Intervention will assist any student who is above third grade and struggling to develop into a fluent, independent reader.
The Newgrange School blends the Wilson Language Program with its unique, compassionate environment to educate and empower young students with dyslexia. The special education school fully incorporates multi-sensory learning, utilizing smart boards and laptops in each classroom. Reading programs are individualized to each child's learning style.
For more than 35 years, the Wilson Language Reading Program has been devoted to “Literacy for All." The Newgrange School has been a Wilson Language Reading partner since 2001. This IDA accreditation validates decades of research and literacy promotion.
