Lovejoy ISD Dyslexia  

Lovejoy ISD dyslexia services are based on prescriptive, researched-based Orton-Gillingham programs.  These programs address the five essential components of reading with direct, intensive and explicit instruction using multi-sensory techniques in learning the code of sounds and letters.  Multi-sensory learning offers students opportunities to learn through seeing, hearing, and touching.  In addition, these programs utilize repetition to secure the basic concepts of reading and spelling.  

Five Essential Components of Reading 

  1. Phonemic Awareness - knowledge and manipulation of sounds in spoken words
  2. Phonics - relationship between written and spoken letters and sounds
  3. Reading fluency, including oral reading skills - ability to read with accuracy, and with appropriate rate, expression, and phrasing
  4. Vocabulary development -  knowledge of words, their definitions, and context
  5. Reading comprehension strategies - understanding of meaning in text
