Results in Weeks…Not Years
Applying the Science of Reading to Screening and Intervention for Students with Dyslexia
See the results of our recent school pilot where students with dyslexia made significant gains in critical reading domains in a matter of weeks. One student gained 48 Words Correct per Minute and another 20 WCPM.

ONE YEAR FOLLOW UP
Our pilot school was so pleased with the results of the 6-week pilot, they implemented the Fluency Builders Program in 2022-23 for their dyslexic students. Even though fluency is the greatest challenge in dyslexia intervention, the 30 minute daily small group intervention produced the following results:
72% outperformed the average single year fluency gains made by typical students.
Results in Weeks...Not Years...in a School Setting
As an Interventionist in an elementary public school setting, I highly recommend the Early Literacy Solutions Orton-Gillingham based Fluency Builders Program.
Our school began using the program in March through May to meet fluency needs that weren’t successfully addressed with other programs. All students showed improvement in several areas during this short time frame. 7 out of 11 students showed improvement in Words Correct Per Minute (WCPM) and Phonological Awareness. All students showed improvement in Decoding.
The Fluency Builders Screener and Progress Tracker are comprehensive and well organized to easily analyze and interpret progress. The responsiveness and customer service from Georgie Normand is outstanding. All questions were answered within 24 hours if not sooner! From the rapid improvement in the students’ progress to the excellent customer support, it has been a pleasure utilizing the Fluency Builders Program. I highly recommend Fluency Builders!

Amazing Results After One Level
I just completed the first level with two of my kiddos. They did amazing! I'm so proud and so are they! They were reading smooth and fast by the end of the level. It is so exciting to see my kiddos all smiling when they read. One of them has been trying to read fluently for the last 4 years with very little success until we did this program. I'm loving it!

Student Gains 30+ Words Correct Per Minute in 3 Months
My second grade dyslexic student has made dramatic progress in fluency in his first three months.

I Love the Fluency Builders Program
My student has struggled with sounding out every word in every sentence for the past year. After completing one level of FB, she was able to read the passages in the program fluently. She remembers her spelling rules and talks through them when spelling words. It really is quite remarkable. Thank you for helping me help her.
