Independent Learning Tools provides one-on-one, multisensory reading and spelling remediation using the Wilson Reading System®. Our services can be provided on-site or within our office. ILT staff members offer the highest quality instruction, maintaining the standards of fidelity outlined by Wilson Reading System®.
Students receiving multisensory remediation need to be scheduled for a minimum of two, one-hour sessions weekly in order for the intervention to be effective. Instruction typically is one-on-one; however, we are certified to provide this instruction for groups if desired.
