43.5 million Americans are dyslexic while 3.5% (2 million children) are receiving special educational services for a reading disorder[1]. Fortunately, Collier School has a certified Wilson Instructor on staff, Michael Penna, to work individually with students who require more intensive literacy instruction due to a language-based learning disability such as dyslexia.

The Wilson Reading System, a program of Wilson Language Training, is an intensive Tier 3 program for students in grades 2-12 and adults with word-level deficits who are struggling to make progress with their current interventions. Wilson also assists individuals who require multisensory language instruction or more intensive structured literacy instruction. 

At Collier, students work one-on-one with Mr. Penna on their phonemic awareness, spelling, fluency, sight word recognition, decoding and word study, oral expressive language development, and comprehension.

“Students benefit immensely. They gain the tools to spell and read which in turn boosts their confidence,” Mr. Penna stated.
