OUR UNIQUE SOLUTION: MUSIC AND AN AFFORDABLE ALTERNATIVE
Give us 6 Weeks to Help your Child Read!
We use Music to help Retrain the Brain!
Combined with structured literacy, music is having a profound effect on student learning because it’s based on the neuroscience of the brain. Dyslexia has a genetic component and it also has a developmental component. Our students have made 1-3 year gains in 6-12 weeks.
READING PROGRAM called Step By Step Reading © follows the Orton Gillingham model; Explicit teaching that is multisensory. Students do auditory, visual, and kinesthetic activities that teach to the student’s strengths while also addressing weaknesses. How do you learn best? All students benefit from using a multisensory reading program but dyslexic students REQUIRE this! Our experience proved that the program must be taught with fidelity to achieve these unprecedented results. With 4-5 days a week for at least 6 weeks will result in 1-3 year gains in reading vocabulary, fluency, and/or comprehension.
Our nine-step program is structured, systematic, sequential, and cumulative. We see these structures in our daily routines. How much greater to bring these structures to teaching reading!
WE DEVELOPED THE FIRST MUSIC APP called Dunking Dyslexia ™ to help students achieve these significant gains in reading vocabulary, reading fluency and reading comprehension. Classical Music is heard in the left ear, while spelling exercises are heard in the right ear. (Enhancing Lateralization). The app is available on IOS and Android, and is a great tool for any student who needs to raise a B to an A or a C to a B.
A MESSAGE OF HOPE, HOW MUSIC ENHANCES READING FOR DYSELXIC STUDENTS is available on this website or on Amazon and should be in the hands of every educator and parent of a dyslexic family member. It contains 17 case studies (fantastic, readable stories about students impacted by Dr. Cintron’s work), over fifty research sources supporting music with teaching phonics and reading, ways to recognize dyslexia, and information on what you can do to help a dyslexic child.
