Agenda 1. Welcome and Introductions 2. Lexia Learning - Research Foundations 3. Curriculum Structure and Demonstration 4. Data Management and Reporting 5. Guidelines for Effective Implementation How Lexia Meets the Requirements of Scientifically-based Interventions / RTI 1. Differentiated instruction 2. Multi-sensory 3. Proven effective, independently reviewed 4. Flexible grouping 5. Consistent quality of instruction 6. Reinforcement/practice to achieve fluency/automaticity 7. Easy to implement 8. Alignment with AIMSWeb, DIBELS 9. Data-driven progress monitoring 10. Engaging for struggling readers Technology-enabled Reading Programs Supplement vs. Intervention Model Supplemental Model Intervention Model Optional, not necessary Goal - Enrichment Not necessary to implement with fidelity No progress monitoring Teacher determines goals, students, schedule Alternative Models: Scientifically-based, Technology-enabled Reading Programs Supplemental Model Intervention Model Optional, not necessary Required (for qualifying Goal - Enrichment students) Not necessary to implement Goal – Acceleration with fidelity Necessary to implement with No progress monitoring fidelity Teacher determines goals, Progress monitoring students, schedule School/District leadership team determines goals, students, schedule Guidelines for Effective Implementation 1. Identify students struggling due to phonics, word analysis, fluency Early prevention vs. intervention AYP, grade level priorities Reading resource gaps 2. Provide training/coaching for all team members 3. Group students flexibly and strategically Lab, classroom, resource room, LMC 4. Schedule to allow adequate time-on-task for Tier II-III 20-30 minutes 4-5 days/week (elementary) 30-40 minutes 2-3 days/week (secondary) 5. Observe and monitor students 6. Meet with students to discuss progress/goals 7. Use (interpret and share) performance data Research Foundations Orton Gillingham Approach Jointly developed by a neurologist (Orton) and an educator (Gillingham) for dyslexic children Validated over 70 years by studies conducted by 17 universities and the NIH Lexia Learning Founded in 1984 with grants from the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) Developed in collaboration with researchers from M.I.T. and Massachusetts General Hospital Lexia Learning and the Orton-Gillingham Approach Five Characterizing Features… Orton-Gillingham Approach 1. Structured and Sequential English Language has 44 sounds represented by 150 letter combinations! 85% is regular (follows phonetic rules/patterns) Etc. 15% irregular Structured, sequential Syllabication Concrete to abstract Vowel-r Simple to complex combinations Regular to irregular Vowel combinations Directly teaches phonics, decoding, word analysis, Long vowel vocabulary sounds Short vowel sounds Orton-Gillingham Approach 2. Multi-sensory Learning Multiple pathways are use simultaneously… Auditory Visual Kinesthetic-tactile Orton-Gillingham Approach 3. Cumulative & Mastery Based New learning connected to prior learning Differentiated instruction adapts to each individual Self-paced Sophisticated branching Practice and Reinforcement Automaticity Fluency Orton-Gillingham Approach 4. Progress Monitoring for Students/Teachers Orton-Gillingham Approach 5. Motivating Activities and Challenge Levels Organization of the Curriculum Program Level Activity Unit Program Overview Lexia Early Reading Ages 4-6 Introduces phonological principles and the alphabet, helping students master critical early literacy skills Primary Reading Ages 5-8 Ensures mastery of basic phonological skills and introduces more advanced phonics principles Strategies for Older Students Ages 9-Adult Sophisticated, age appropriate user interface engages older students with extensive practice in a wide range of skills, from basic phonological awareness to advanced word attack and vocabulary Lexia’s Scope & Sequence Lexia Early Reading® Level Develops phonemic and phonological 1 awareness. Activities reinforce the precursors to reading; rhyming, word segmentations, and sound blending. The activities in this level do not require alphabetic knowledge. Level Introduces alphabet skills. There are five 2 activities; three activities introduce consonants, one activity focuses on short vowels and one activity introduces letter combinations. Students are asked to listen for beginning and ending sounds, including digraphs. 4 Elements of Phonemic Awareness Initial & Rhyming Final Segmenting Blending Consonants Lexia Primary Reading TM Level Transition to decoding. 1 phonemic awareness, sound-symbol correspondence, basic decoding. Level Short Vowel Words: 2 Short-vowel words; including CVC, blends, and digraphs. Level Silent-e: 3 long-vowel (silent-e) words, sound segmenting, contextual information. Level Vowel Combinations, Vowel-r: 4 Vowel combinations,vowel-r words, word-attack strategies and conceptual reasoning. Level Review: 5 Words in context (sentences and paragraphs) Lexia Strategies for Older Students TM Level Develops automatic recognition of short 1 vowel, one-syllable words. Phonological awareness of sound segments in initial, medial and final positions, including digraphs. Level Short vowel words with blends and 2 digraphs and long vowel words. Develop word-attack strategies, sound segmentation, short and long vowel sounds, practice in context. Level Decoding two-syllable words. Advanced 3 word-attack strategies and reinforce phonological awareness. Level Word-attack strategies for multi-syllable words. Open, closed and consonant- 4 le syllables. Single word, sentences and paragraphs in contextual material. Level Structural analysis as a means of word-attack. Anglo-Saxon, Greek and Latin 5 Word roots as well as special accents. Vocabulary Latin, Greek, Anglo Saxon Roots Demonstration How to Access Management System (Admin and Teacher Access) www.mylexia.com Access Levels District Admin – add schools, add staff School Admin – add staff Class – add classes, add students, make assignments Lexia Reading Program (Student Access) Click Lexia Icon or Lexia Program Must be loaded on student computer How to Download/Install the Lexia Reading Program 1.
