More about Reading with TLC Reading with TLC is comprised of 2 creative programs, Lively Letters and Sight Words You Can See. Lively Letters improves phonemic awareness, speech production, and phonics, while Sight Words You Can See facilitates the training of abstract sight words that don’t follow the rules of phonics.
These programs were designed specifically to target students who have or seem to be developing reading disorders, including dyslexia. These unique programs benefit students with various learning disabilities, speech/language disorders, or developmental delays, as well as those who are learning English as a second language (ESL, ELL students).
Because Lively Letters and Sight Words You Can See are multisensory approaches that incorporate imagery, hand and body cues, music, humorous stories, and mnemonics (memory tricks), students with different learning styles are able to use their strongest modes of learning to access and hold on to the information they need to acquire. The programs are structured with sequence of skill development that is flexible enough to accommodate students’ varied learning speeds. The flexibility of the programs also lends them to be easily combined with, or followed by, most other reading programs.
