What is the Wilson Reading System?
The Wilson Reading System is an intensive literacy program which is both multisensory and interactive. Closely related to the Fundations program, and also created by Barbara Wilson, this reading intervention methodology focuses on phonemic awareness, decoding and word study, sight word recognition, spelling, fluency, vocabulary, oral expressive language development and comprehension. From the beginning steps of the 12 step program, students learn to encode (spell) as they simultaneously learn to decode and read new words.
A child's ability to read and comprehend depends on a variety of factors including phonological awareness and a rapid and automatic recognition and decoding of single words. We work on these targeted skills in every single Wilson lesson. As all children are individuals with differentiated needs, the Wilson methodology allows the program to be specifically designed around your child’s areas of weakness.
If you would like to come into school to see our Wilson materials or an example lesson, I would be happy to share with you the intricacies of the program.
Please feel free to reach out to me should you ever have any questions or concerns.
