Recommendation of Sonday System

I recommend without hesitation Arlene Sonday’s Learning To Read system to any parent or tutor–with or without a background in Special Education–seeking to instruct a child to read in an explicit, multi-sensory format. Ms. Sonday’s calm, clear and detailed instruction in her instructional DVD and lesson plans reassure the instructor that he/she can certainly succeed at teaching the material. The progress monitoring tools are simple to administer and are invaluable to ensure automaticity and mastery of the material. Children will find that this reading system is pleasing to the eye, ear and touch. The structure and strategies provided by Ms. Sonday are well-designed to empower the reluctant or struggling reader to unlock the code of the English language through song, touch, writing, spelling, speech and play. The Sonday System is also a cost-effective solution to those who may not have the time or budget to become certified in reading instruction or hire a reading tutor for their child. Five stars!

Mingo County School District, WV

Executive Summary
Mingo County Schools and Winsor Learning began a partnership in 2008. Mingo was in search of a reading intervention program that would meetthe needs of their special education students and students that were struggling significantly in the area of reading. They were also searching for an instructional tool that would not be cumbersome to implement, but would provide their teachers with the support needed to understand the fundamental components of reading acquisition. Winsor Learning provided a demonstration of the Sonday System line of products for Mingo County staff. Using a small group of Mingo County students, the Winsor consultant modeled a Sonday System 1 lesson, while administration and key teaching personal observed.

District Reduces Costs with SIBS Process

District:  Walled Lake, MI

The District identified student “G” for observation. It was suspected that “G” needed a full time paraeducator. The District initiated a SIBS Case to observe the student then conducted six (6) observations using SIBS.

Outcomes:

  1. After all data was gathered and analyzed, it was determined that “G” needed only half time support. The paraeducator was able to help other students during the times “G” did not need support. This saved the District thousands of dollars in student support costs.
  2. The District used information gathered during the observations to guide the training of the paraeducator assigned to “G”. They were able to pin point issues using the SIBS Observation Reports and were better able to train and prepare the paraeducator to address the issues before support for “G” was initiated.
  3. When submitting the request memo for a part time paraeducator, the administrator was able to state that they used a Data-Driven approach in evaluating the need for a paraeducator. This eliminated the questions that usually come after a request is made for additional support.

“The best workshop I have ever attended and I have been to them all. Your trainers are the best.”

Debora Dawson, Special Ed. Supervisor K-12, IU4

Thanks for a wonderful two days of training! It was invigorating to learn from such high energy and dynamic people. I believe I could feel the excitement in the room; teachers seemed eager to go back to their districts and get started with the Sonday System…[some] were so fired up about Sonday they went back to their district and encouraged administration to ask for more in-service from Winsor, which would be a great addition to their professional development.
