Today we were treated with a lovely sunny day to kick off our Summer Intervention Program.
We are off to a fantastic Start! Assessments for our summer intervention are complete. I'm so proud of our students for completing the assessments. Now our real work can begin.
Tomorrow we begin the exciting adventure through the land of the English language. We will set off on this voyage learning the fundamental letter sounds and then search for the 44 speech sounds and the elusive 90 grapheme representations. Some will be easy to catch and some will be sneaky but I have full confidence in our Adventures. Let's equip them with the best nets and skills, then let us see what will escape them! Good job boys!
If you know of families in the Thunder Bay Area that need literacy help please do not hesitate to pass along this link Home. Naturally Literate is still taking students for the Summer Intervention Program, Grades 1-12. Please refer to Services for more information on our programs.
Have a wonderful Monday everyone and stay tuned as our adventurers discover and capture these sounds and graphemes.

"Intensive training like Celeste’s can help kids with dyslexia become fluent readers, especially when it starts in kindergarten or first grade. But this practice-practice-practice approach is demanding and time-consuming for kids and teachers, and people who start treatment after first grade may still lag behind their peers, says Perrachione."

Mind Reader, To treat language disorders Tyler Perrachione investigates what makes dyslexic brains different.
One-one specialized instruction that is specifically designed for children with Dyslexia and Learning Disabilities is the most effective way to give them the tools they need to master English. Programs like the ones offered at Naturally Literate prepare and equip a child with the tools to decode and understand English. These are life changing tools that profoundly shape a child's life for the better and set them up for success. The sooner these tools can be taught the easier school life becomes.

Dyslexic brain (left) compared to non-dyslexic brain (right) fMRI scan taken while reading. "The good readers typically have more brain activation in a region of the left temporal lobe called the “visual word form area,” which is associated with reading, than people with dyslexia." -Dr. Perrachione
I have linked an inspirational story about a singer-song writer who is do what he does best. He also happens to have dyslexia. He is reaching out to youth as a mentor and role model to demonstrate that you can still be highly successful even if you think differently and struggle in reading. Check out this music video and article here. Happy Dyslexia Awareness Month.
