Tutor Training (Reading Intervention 101)

Why Take Payne Education Center's Reading Intervention (RI 101)?

Because it takes an entire community to build strong readers! 

Payne Education Center is often approached by individuals, community groups, and schools who want to work with struggling readers, including those with dyslexia. RI 101 is based on a multisensory design to encompass basic reading needs and exposure to age-appropriate reading stories and articles, an avenue to vocabulary acquisition. This program is in compliance with Payne’s seminal knowledge and experience about the science of reading and Structured Multisensory Language Alphabetic Phonics instruction and learning.
