Wilson Reading System


The Wilson Reading System is designed for students who struggle with decoding and encoding (spelling). The program directly and systematically teaches students how to fluently and accurately decode.  It is unlike traditional phonics programs in that instruction is very interactive and multisensory.  It also thoroughly teaches total word construction not just phonics.  Students learn to encode (spell) as they learn to decode.


This program will greatly benefit:

·        Students unable to decode accurately:


Slow, labored readers who lack fluency


Students who may know many words by sight, but have difficulty reading new words and “nonsense” syllables


Students who often guess at words


·        Students able to speak and understand English, but not read or write it (such as ESL students)

·        Poor spellers

·        Students with dyslexia

·        Students unsuccessful with other reading programs or who still have “gaps” in their decoding and/or spelling
