Our Learning Works Dyslexia Geelong uses an evidenced-based, structured literacy teaching method to help struggling students. 

We provide a research-based intervention using the best materials. We have decodable readers and provide tailored take-home practice materials. 

We help children who are not strong readers or spellers, by directly teaching them how to read and decode words.

We teach the code of reading and spelling

Children with dyslexia require explicit, direct and systematic instruction in oral and written language. Our remediation for dyslexic learners follows the Orton-Gillingham approach, which we have professional training in through the Institute of Multisensory Education. The peak body for dyslexia in Australia, the Australian Dyslexia Association, recommends this approach and training, which our teachers follow. 

We also use the systematic synthetic program, Sounds Write to teach phonics in a structured and explicit manner. 

Principles of our dyslexia Geelong approach

  • We teach students how words work, with letter-sound relationships, syllables and word parts.
  • Our lessons follow a specific order or progression and build on previously taught material
  • They are structured – there are step-by-step procedures for introducing, reviewing and practicing concepts
  • Concepts and skills are taught for mastery
  • Skills are constantly reviewed while new material is introduced
  • Vocabulary, sentence structure, writing and reading comprehension all are taught in a structured, sequential, and cumulative manner 
  • We use direct instruction, which means we demonstrate all material we are introducing.  
  • Core skills are taught together – reading and spelling go hand in hand
