Located in the heart of Monmouth County, the Total Learning Center is a unique facility that offers remedial programs for children and adults with dyslexia, attention deficit disorder, and other learning disabilities. Our programs are geared specifically towards improving performance in the areas of reading, spelling, and written language. Our methods are based on the Orton Gillingham instructional approach. Each of our staff members have received extensive training in multi-sensory teaching, and we work in close collaboration with students, parents, teachers and Child Study Teams.
The Total Learning Center Applies the Wilson Reading Curriculum to Teach Reading in Monmouth County
Designed based on the Orton Gillingham approach, The Wilson Program is a structured remedial approach that has been proven effective in teaching reading ,spelling and writing to students with dyslexia and related learning disabilities. The 10-part lesson plan was developed to remediate the sources of a student’s learning difficulties, and to address them accordingly. At the Total Learning Center, we use the Wilson Reading Curriculum to help students in Monmouth County succeed where traditional methods have faltered.
The Total Learning Center has demonstrated success with students through strict adherence to criteria laid out by the Wilson Program. While some public schools have adopted these techniques, often students are not provided with the 45 – 60 minutes needed to achieve the program’s desired results, and many times it is blended with traditional reading programs. In addition, some public school teachers practicing the Wilson Program and other Orton Gillingham based reading programs have not received adequate training. Our staff has been formally trained in all aspects of this curriculum.
