What Is The PRIDE Reading Program?
The PRIDE Reading Program is based on scientific research and years of Orton-Gillingham training and teaching experience at PRIDE Learning Center in Southern California. PRIDE Learning Center is world renowned for our work with students struggling with their reading and spelling due to common language difficulties such as Dyslexia, Auditory Processing Disorder, Speech and Developmental Delays and other Learning Disabilities.
At PRIDE, we did not invent Orton-Gillingham instruction, but we have put together what we believe is the most effective and user-friendly curriculum that for many children, is the only program that will work. We are confident that you will find the program easy to implement and will see amazing results.
How Does The PRIDE Reading Program Work
PRIDE Reading Program begins with the recognition of the letters, the sounds of the letters, and the sounds of letter combinations (phonemes). PRIDE is structured, systematic and cumulative. This means that, like a pyramid, the base must first be strong enough to support the entire structure.
After your child receives a strong foundation, they are able to start recognizing words using the skills learned. There are nine different lessons per concept in each of the Introduction, Practice and Reinforcement units. That is twenty-seven opportunities to master the skill before moving to the next. Plus, learned concepts are continuously reviewed as you progress forward through the program.
With PRIDE Reading Program you will see improved reading, writing, spelling, comprehension and increased self-confidence. While the program works with all students, it is especially successful for students with dyslexia, auditory and visual processing disorder,speech deficits and other learning differences.
The PRIDE online Teaching Guide is the key to teaching the PRIDE program for parents or your child’s trusted tutor. PRIDE’s easy to follow scripted, step-by-step Teaching Guide walks you through which skills to teach, and when and how to teach them. With the PRIDE Reading Program, there is no need for special training or advanced understanding of spelling and reading rules. All you need to do is read the highlighted script of the Teaching Guide aloud to your child and follow the simple directions. Plus, if you ever need help with how a lesson is taught, there are short and easy to understand videos showing the PRIDE method in practice. We recommend 30 to 60 minute lessons to start, but most children advance faster through the PRIDE Reading Program with more intensity.
