Those involved with Sonday System® across the country include Franklin Lakes (NJ), East Orange (NJ), New Orleans SD, Pittsburgh Public, St. Paul (MN), Roswell (NM), Anchorage (AK), Lincoln (NE), Gilbert (AZ) and hundreds of others.

 

The Sonday System®Reading Intervention Solutions for Pre K-12 is scientifically-based multi-sensory language instruction. The focus is direct instruction for struggling readers – Tier 2 (“strategic”), especially Tier 3 (“intensive”) and ESL/ELL. It is:

  • ·         Direct and Explicit
  • ·         Simultaneous and Multi-Sensory
  • ·         Systematic and Cumulative
  • ·         Synthetic and Analytic
  • ·         Diagnostic and Prescriptive

 

I’m guessing you and your team has seen a lot of descriptors like those above. The Sonday System has distinguished itself for…

(1)    Ease of implementation, even for instructors with little or no background in literacy

(2)    Effectiveness with students who have not responded to other programs, and

(3)   Success at all ages, and notably with Middle- and High School-aged students who are significantly behind grade level

 

Arlene Sonday, the “architect” of our approach, is a Founding Fellow and the first President of the Academy of Orton-Gillingham Practitioners and Educators. The International Dyslexia Association in 2009 awarded Arlene the Margaret Byrd Lawson Lifetime Achievement Award.

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!
