Wylie's Language Science Dyslexia program is Take Flight. Take Flight is a multi-sensory curriculum. The curriculum teaches students with dyslexia specific strategies and techniques to compensate for the difficulties they will face.
Take Flight addresses the five components of effective reading instruction:
Phonemic Awareness - explicitly teaches the relationships between speech-sound production and spelling-sound patterns.
Phonics - provides a systematic approach for single word decoding
Fluency - uses research-proven directed practice in repeated reading of words, phrases and passages to help students read newly encountered text more fluently.
Vocabulary - features multiple word learning strategies including understanding of morphological units, word relationships, figurative language, syntax and semantics taught directly with application in text.
Comprehension - teaches students to use and articulate multiple comprehension strategies such as question generation and answering, summarization and comprehension monitoring.
