Specializing in reading and math interventions for students who are in grades K-5, or those Middle and High School students who are identified as having a reading disorder such as dyslexia, the instructional team at Bridges to Learning uses the following core of curriculum to meet each learner’s needs.

Reading Mastery (Gr K-2)

Reading Mastery uses the highly explicit, systematic approach of Direct Instruction to accelerate reading

and help students achieve a high rate of success.

Addresses all five essential components of reading—phonemic awareness, phonics and word analysis, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension.

■ Provides spelling instruction to help students make the connection between decoding and spelling patterns.

■ Develops decoding, word recognition, and comprehension skills that transfer to other subject areas.

Corrective Reading Programs (Gr 3-12)

Corrective Reading Curriculum provides intensive and accelerated reading intervention. The Direct Instruction program delivers tightly sequenced, carefully planned lessons that give struggling students the structure and practice necessary to become skilled, fluent readers and empowered learners.

Wilson Reading & Language Systems

Based on more than three decades of data, Wilson Reading System is designed for students in grades 2–12 and adults with word-level deficits who are not making sufficient progress through their current intervention; have been unable to learn with other teaching strategies; or who require more intensive structured literacy instruction due to a language-based learning disability, such as dyslexia.

Fast ForWord by Scientific Learning Corporation

Fast ForWord is an evidence-based, adaptive reading and language program that delivers, on average, 1-2 years gain in 40-60 hours of use for any struggling learner.* Fast ForWord is a powerful and unique brain-based approach that targets the root causes of reading difficulty to deliver lasting results that make better readers and lifelong learners.

Clear Fluency by Scientific Learning Corporation

Clear Reading is an innovative online guided reading tool and component of the Fast ForWord program that provides intensive reading practice. Learners use the tool to read developmentally appropriate texts both silently and aloud. What makes Clear Reading such an innovative reading practice tool is its use of patented technology that listens as each word is read aloud and delivers immediate support whenever a learner struggles with or mispronounces a word — reinforcing newly learned reading skills, vocabulary,and fluency.

Touch Math

Touch Math is a multi-sensory math program that uses the numeral itself as a manipulative. Touch Math makes critical math concepts appealing and accessible for students who struggle to understand grade-level content.This program allows students to work at their own pace through scaffolded instruction. Touch Math presents information in multiple ways to teach all types of learners (visual,
