Information about our Intensive Literacy Program

Speech for Young Talkers is offering an interactive literacy program based on the Lindamood Bell’s Seeing Stars approach to reading and writing. This program changes how students process language by focusing on symbol imagery, which is the ability to visualize letters in your mind’s eye. Symbol imagery underlies both phonological and orthographic processing. The connection of imagery and language is necessary for sounding out new words and quickly recognizing letters and common words. Under the supervision of a trained clinical supervisor, students can be taught to read and spell to their potential, regardless of their age or struggle with literacy.
