Dyslexia Support Teacher
Hello! My name is Alyson Zembower, and I am excited to be the Dyslexia Support Teacher for Skaggs Elementary. I began teaching at Skaggs in 2002 as a kindergarten teacher and have also taught 2nd and 4th grade. I love being a Skaggs Star!
The dyslexia program uses the Take Flight curriculum. Take Flight is designed specifically for individuals who have a language-based learning difference (dyslexia), the 10 – 15% of the population who may be unable to remember two-dimensional symbols, letters, or words easily. These individuals require intervention that utilizes special methods and materials.
Take Flight is a comprehensive, ungraded, structured, and sequential curriculum that utilizes multisensory techniques for basic instruction in reading, writing, and spelling. Task analysis was used to organize and sequence the following:
- Phonic regularities for reading
- Rules for syllable division
- Other basic linguistic concepts
