Wilson Reading System
The Wilson Reading System is delivered 1:1 student-to-specialist and consists of intensive structured literacy instruction which is necessary due to a language-based learning disability, such as dyslexia. We consider ourselves at Wasatch among boarding schools for dyslexia that are fully equipped to help students succeed. The program is based on phonological-coding research and Orton-Gillingham principles. The Wilson Reading System provides a prescribed sequence of multisensory instruction that explicitly teaches the structure of the English language. The WIST (Word Identification and Spelling Test) and the WADE (Wilson Assessment of Decoding and Encoding) tests are used to determine placement in the program and are administered on site.
