Dyslexia Training Program
The Dyslexia Training Program is a multi-sensory program of instruction that emphasizes phonics. It is taught by a teacher/facilitator to classes of limited size using several teaching aids, including video recordings, workbooks, writing frames, linkage paper, three-dimensional letters, flashcards, wall charts, dictionaries, and other items.
The primary program consists of 350 hours of classroom time, one  hour per day, five  days per week, excluding holidays. In order that the students may all be age-appropriate and comply with the elements of the disorder, we accept only those children who are in grades 4, 5, or 6, have not yet attained the age of 13, free of other impending conditions, and who have a full-scale I.Q. of at least 90 as determined by the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children, 3rd Edition.
There is also a 160-hour program for youth older than the age of 13. This one-year program provides instruction for students in the 7th grade through 11th grade. A teacher/facilitator conducts each class who is certified to teach in Louisiana. The location of each class is in various physical facilities, including Masonic Lodge buildings, churches, schools, or other specified entities.
