Teaching Literacy Methodology
At Stellar, we proudly employ the Slingerland® approach to literacy, because we know it works! This methodology is a simultaneous, multi-sensory, structured approach for teaching language arts to dyslexic students in the classroom.
Slingerland® is an internationally recognized teaching method for students with dyslexia. Developed in 1977 by Beth Slingerland, this approach has helped 3.5 million children (worldwide) overcome the challenges of dyslexia.
The Slingerland® approach starts with the smallest unit of language–the letter–and builds upon the concepts of its sight and sound until students are reading and writing sentences, paragraphs, and books. Utilizing auditory, visual, and kinesthetic processes, students develop strong learning channels in their brains that encourages academic competence and builds confidence in their own abilities to retain information and apply knowledge in a functional way.
