Savannah Speech and Hearing Center is pleased to announce the addition of a major new tool to its reading therapy practice: the Up-Words Reading® program.
The Center chose this reading program because of the research that went into developing it, and the appealing materials. It is a comprehensive program designed to facilitate successful reading. It is not a program designed to teach school subjects, but to give a child the tools needed to read.
Up-Words Reading® is a new early literacy program providing the most comprehensive, systematic and integrated reading instruction available. It is the result of years of experience in both reading instruction and speech-language therapy, and carefully follows research driven evidence-based practices, including the proven methods of Orton-Gillingham and Lindamood Phonemic Sequencing (LIPS). Up-Words Reading® combines phonics, fluency, sight words, reading comprehension, spelling, handwriting and phonological awareness into daily lesson plans that build strong reading foundations in young learners.
It is a multi-sensory method, demonstrated to improve memory formation in all styles of learners. The custom-written, decodable readers feature appealing characters in ongoing adventures, helping draw young readers into the stories and associate reading, from the beginning, with success and fun.
“With Up-Words Reading® our goal was to provide teachers, tutors, therapists and parents with a comprehensive early literacy program that contains everything they need to be assured they’re providing second-to-none reading education to their young students,” said Lorie S. Delk, creator of Up-Words Reading®. “The Savannah Speech and Hearing Center shares that passion for helping young people learn not only to read, but to love reading. We are delighted they have selected Up-Words Reading® for their practice.”
