Simplistic Solutions aims to achieve an understanding of dyslexia and provide effective interventions in order to achieve success in all aspects of life.

Many students are at risk for reading failure in our school systems. These students display many common characteristics such as difficulty with rhyming, trouble spelling, difficulty memorizing sight words for reading and spelling, mixing up the sounds in syllables and words, sound and letter confusion, and not meeting reading fluency benchmarks.

Research has shown that certain instructional methods work well for this specific group of students. By using these methods, we can prevent these students from suffering lifelong difficulties with reading, writing and spelling.

  • Cumulative – Includes constant and consistent review of previously taught concepts
  • Individualized – The unique needs of every student are met
