educators — Introduction

For more than 25 years, Reading Assist Institute has worked inside schools to provide both reading intervention for students and professional development for teachers.

We believe in our reading intervention program. We’ve seen what works.

Our structured literacy instruction – grounded in Orton-Gillingham principles – is explicit, sequential, systematic and multisensory, all necessary for children who struggle with learning to read for a variety of reasons. Reading interventionists and school personnel work together and are on the same page, creating a continuum of reading education that can provide struggling readers with the skills they need to advance their reading skills.

Those who struggle the most – Tier 3 students – need one-to-one reading intervention in order to take the first steps toward mastering the basic mechanics of reading. This calls for explicit, frequent, consistent intervention that is provided by our reading interventionists, who work inside the schools during the school day to provide the intensive training that these students need.

Certification in the Reading Assist Intervention Program is available to teachers, reading specialists and other educators who wish to increase their understanding and knowledge of structured literacy and develop skills needed to work with those readers who struggle the most.
