Teaching Literacy Methodology
At Stellar, we exclusively use the Slingerland® approach to literacy, because it works! This methodology is a simultaneous, multi-sensory, structured approach for teaching language arts to dyslexic students in the classroom.
Slingerland® is an internationally recognized teaching method for students with dyslexia. Developed in 1977 by Beth Slingerland, this approach has helped millions of children (worldwide) overcome the challenges of dyslexia.
The Slingerland® approach starts with the smallest unit of language–the letter–and builds upon the concepts of its sight and sound until students are reading and writing sentences, paragraphs, and books. Utilizing auditory, visual, and kinesthetic processes, students develop strong learning channels in their brains that encourages academic competence and builds confidence in their own abilities to retain information and apply knowledge in a functional way.
