Reading & Spelling

Gameplan uses a “connectionist” word study approach to help individuals cue into the spoken language characteristics of reading and spelling by using a speech-to-print approach. We help our clients to pay attention to the sound structure of spoken words, thereby supporting them to link sounds, letter patterns and meanings to read and write words.

Our caring therapists employ a multi-linguistic approach to develop phonological awareness, orthographic knowledge, morphological knowledge, semantics and mental orthographic images. This ensures that our clients can not only spell the words that they use, but also develop a deep understanding of the underlying language structures in words. Our multi-linguistic approach develops a deep understanding of the sounds, letters and meanings of words in a student’s own reading and writing.

Our goal is to harness a student’s unique strengths to develop a targeted and engaging Gameplan tailored to the individual needs of each client.
