The Fluency Builders program is designed to prevent reading failure by optimizing the PreK-2 window. The program initiates fluency work as early as Pre-K and as soon as students can blend two sounds together.

The Fluency Builders program utilizes a Structured Literacy framework. A Structured Literacy approach to reading instruction is recommended for all students by the International Dyslexia Association.

Structured Literacy is a registered trademark of the

International Dyslexia Association.

PREVENTIONINTERVENTION

starts with one of the Screeners

The Screeners are based on the most recent neurocognitive research on risk factors and

deficits associated with dyslexia.

The Fluency Builders 3-12 Dyslexia Screener

Identify at risk students as early as the first week of Pre-K.

Use the Screeners to identify those at risk and

to identify their unique deficit profile to inform instruction.

(According to the most recent neurocognitive research on dyslexia, each student has a unique deficit profile.)

Use the results and specific instructional recommendations for targeted instruction/intervention.

 Screeners include alternate fluency passages for reuse as a progress monitoring tool.

The Screener results and recommendations can be used with the Fluency Builders program to provide supplemental

Tier 1 instruction (PreK-2) to prevent reading failure or to provide intervention (PreK-12). Contact us to  find out how to optimize the PreK-2 window by  implementing the Fluency Builders program as a Tier 1 supplement.
