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.
Simultaneous, multisensory, structured approach
Teaching language arts to dyslexic students in the classroom
Builds on smallest unit of language–the letter– using sight and sound
Trains students to retain information and apply knowledge in a functional way
WHY SLINGERLAND® WORKS
Research has shown the effectiveness of the Slingerland® Multisensory Structured Language Approach (MSL) in helping children and adults with specific language differences learn how to read, spell and write.
BUILDING ON THE LETTER
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.
The Slingerland® Approach is a supportive instructional program that encourages academic competence, effective work habits and self-discipline. It can be used in any classroom setting with any material. Read More
ENTHUSIASM FOR LEARNING
By using our success-oriented, progressive, multi-sensory approach to instruction, our students develop an enthusiasm for learning and overcoming the challenges of dyslexia to become leaders in the classroom. Learn more about Our Programs
Utilizing auditory, visual, and kinesthetic processes, students develop strong learning channels in their brains. This encourages academic competence and builds confidence in their own abilities to retain information and apply knowledge in a functional way.
