Take Flight is an Orton Gillingham based multisensory structured language dyslexia curriculum for students identified with dyslexia. Intensity (small group size, extended length of sessions and treatment, individualized lessons) is what distinguishes dyslexia intervention from regular reading instruction. Take Flight was developed by the Luke Waites Center for Dyslexia & Learning disorders at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital. 

    Reading By Design is an Individualized Literacy Intervention program. This program is aligned with research-based practices for developing literacy and is designed for students with basic reading difficulties, such as dyslexia. This intervention follows an intensive, explicit, and cumulative design for remediation of reading and writing skills at all grade levels. Reading By Design was developed by the Region 4 ESC.
