Paths to Literacy Leadership

Neuhaus Education Center provides a continuum of reading instruction classes for educators and programs based on a multi-tiered model of instruction. Offerings include programs for those who wish to be school campus literacy leaders and those who want to be therapists working with individuals with dyslexia and related reading disorders.

Three-Tiered Instruction

Tiered instruction and intervention is essential for early identification and support of students with learning difficulties. Tier 1 is described here as core instruction, which is effective for 80% of students; Tier 2 is instruction targeted to the 15% of students who are struggling with literacy; and Tier 3 is an intensive intervention for the 5% of students with serious reading disabilities. Neuhaus offers professional learning that prepares literacy leaders for all tiers of literacy instruction.

Neuhaus Tier I

We know that a knowledgeable teacher is the most important influence on students’ reading development inside a school. General classroom educators take Neuhaus classes to gain the basic knowledge they need to get reading instruction right the first time.
