Diagnosed with dyslexia or not, an Orton-Gillingham based method is highly beneficial for struggling readers. We design individualized and group instruction. Below are two programs we use to ensure maximum progress.

What is the DuBard Association Method?

The DuBard Association Method has been used by the DuBard School for Language Disorders at the University of Southern Mississippi since 1962. 

It benefits students with severe language-speech disorders, hearing impairments, learning disabilities, dyslexia, autism spectrum disorders, and other issues. 

The Association Method meets the criteria of the National Reading Panel (2000) for a scientifically-based reading program for including instruction in: 

  • phonemic awareness

  • phonics

  • vocabulary

  • fluency

  • text comprehension

What is Neuhaus?

Neuhaus Education Center was founded in 1980 by a group of parents and teachers who were interested in bringing effective Orton-Gillingham-based reading instruction to Houston. 

Neuhaus Education Center's Curriculum for the student with dyslexia is Basic Language Skills, a curriculum for instruction in reading, writing, and spelling that utilizes multi-sensory teaching techniques. 

The research-based components of Neuhaus Education Center's Basic Language Skills for students with dyslexia include:

  • Phonemic awareness

  • Instant letter recognition

  • Explicit instruction in decoding (phonics)

  • Extended reading in connected text to develop fluency
