Provides a jump start for newly identified students of all ages with dyslexia who need comprehensive dyslexia intervention while awaiting placement in an intervention group. Nine-week, evidence-based dyslexia intervention. One-on-one or small group instruction (no more than six students). Contains the five components of effective reading instruction (phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, reading comprehension). Each component is taught developmentally using a direct, systematic, cumulative and multisensory method of introduction and practice to meet the specific needs of newly identified students with dyslexia. Taught by a Certified Academic Language Therapist/Practitioner. Four days a week (60 minutes per day) or five days a week (45 minutes per day). Key Features: The Turbo Start curriculum was developed as a program in which newly identified students who are ready to begin dyslexia intervention can drop in at any time until a group is formed. The content of Turbo Start is derived from the evidence-based Take Flight curriculum and provides foundational training in five specific components of reading intervention. Turbo Start introduces content from the first two books of the Take Flight lesson cycle sequence and provides flexibility in the intervention timeline to prepare students to enter dyslexia intervention in a group setting.
