Grades K-12

Crafting independent readers, spellers, writers, and thinkers by helping students hone the multisensory tools needed to “learn how to learn.”

Research-Based Programs

Linguistics Edge programs use proven techniques endorsed by the National Reading Panel.

Reading

Reading begins with sounds and builds to syllables, sentences, paragraphs, and pages. Spelling and comprehension are interwoven into the program

Writing

Writing begins with sentences and expands to paragraphs, pages, and chapters. It includes pre-writing, grammar, punctuation, and, for older students, introduction to standard essay style.

Math

Math instruction emphasizes numeracy, and visualizing numbers to improve working memory. Students use manipulatives such as beans and an interlocking number line as they move from concrete to abstract calculations.

"…the jury is no longer out; (dyslexic) children need structured multi-sensory phonics support...When children receive that support for a few years, their brains can literally be re-wired to use more efficient areas when they read."

-- Lucy Calkins, founding director of the Teachers College Reading and Writing Project
at Columbia University
