LTK was designed for this type of student. Those with learning disabilities, specifically dyslexia, require a very controlled approach to reading instruction. The Orton-Gillingham method is the most-researched and

most-proven technique ever devised to address the needs of student learning with dyslexia. That’s what’s inside LTK.

[/fusion_toggle][fusion_toggle title=”Do students have to begin at lesson 1? Is there a placement test?” open=”yes” hide_pop_tinymce=””]

There is a Placement Test within the program that can be used to determine the student’s current reading level. After completing the LTK Placement Test, the student learning with dyslexia is automatically placed at the appropriate beginning lesson number. For the LTK At Home and LTK For Kids programs, you can access this program from the What Do You Want To Do program. If using LTK For Schools, this function is accessible from the Lesson Plan tab of the Instructor Menu, and can be set for all newly-enrolled students to automatically take the LTK Placement Test. There is also a Set Beginning Lesson program that provides the ability to start at any of the 87 LTK lessons.

[/fusion_toggle][fusion_toggle title=”How old should the typical student be?” open=”yes”]

All versions of the Language Tune-Up Kit will successfully teach students learning with dyslexia who are age 6 through adult. We do not

recommend use of LTK by students who are age 5 or younger unless an adult can work with the student to

provide assistance when needed. LTK does not contain any “cartoonish” characters that will sidetrack the

student. Some younger children may seem to need his type of “edu-tainment” to stay focused on computer

software. We do not recommend this approach, as it tends to distract the student from the goal of the exercises

instead of helping them to learn.
