The Wilson Reading System is an instructional program for struggling readers, based on the Orton-Gillingham approach to reading instruction. The program addresses both decoding and encoding (spelling). A certified Wilson instructor, utilizing visual, kinesthetic, auditory and tactile multisensory techniques, teaches students. They learn: letter sound recognition, syllable formation and the structure of the English language.
The entire program consists of 12 separate steps, following a sequential order, building upon the previous step. Each step addresses a particular concept, breaking it down into smaller segments or sub-steps. Students master each sub-step before moving forward to the next step. Every tutoring session is planned individually, following the structure and guidelines of the program, while focusing on the individual student needs. Sessions adhere to a structured format, addressing ten skill areas including, sound letter recognition, word and sentence reading, along with spelling and sentence writing.
