What We Offer

Intensive one-on-one tutoring with multi-sensory methods to address phonemic awareness and auditory/visual processing.
  • Lindamood-Bell ® Phoneme Sequencing (LiPS)

    The LiPS® Program teaches students to discover and label the oral-motor movements of phonemes. Students can then verify the identity, number, and sequence of sounds in words.

  • Seeing Stars®

    The Seeing Stars®: Symbol Imagery for Phonemic Awareness, Sight Words, and Spelling Program (SI) successfully develops symbol imagery for reading and spelling.
