FAA’s reading programs are designed to recognize how the differing strengths and needs of individual students influence their literacy development.
Frederick Adventist Academy (FAA) augments its academic curriculum with specialized intervention and enrichment reading programs that enhance the literacy performance of both advanced and struggling readers. Teaching children to read requires that every child receive excellent reading instruction and that children who struggle with reading receive additional instruction. FAA’s reading programs are designed to recognize how the differing strengths and needs of individual students influence their literacy development. The programs apply understanding of reading difficulties, dyslexia, and reading disabilities to promote literacy.
The Intervention Reading Program is designed to motivate readers and provide additional enrichment support for the North American Division Pathways, Saxon Phonics, Reading 100, and Kurzweil reading tools already in place at FAA. The intervention reading program utilizes the philosophy of Orton Gillingham and Wilson Language for reading success. These unique methods offer a multi-sensory approach for phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary development, fluency, and comprehension strategies.
Working closely with your student’s teacher, the Intervention Reading Program begins with various research-validated assessments. Within the program, a plan is customized for each student’s distinctive style of learning. Incorporating tailored instruction that integrates technology, hands-on learning, and one-on-one instruction, students are coached through reading, spelling, study skills, and writing. Parents are kept abreast of the student’s progress through written reports and parent-teacher conferences.
Our reading programs are taught by Mrs. Linda Wilson.
