Elementary Program Rockville

July 8 - August 1, 2019 from 9:00 - 12:00

ASDEC provides the only Orton-Gillingham Based program endorsed by the International Dyslexia Association in the Washington, DC region. The program provides intensive instruction in reading,  writing, spelling, and handwriting and math. Physical movement is added to the visual and auditory stimuli to provide multisensory learning. The hands-on aspect of the structured routines facilitates attention and concentration. The careful development of conceptual understanding and the high level of repetition reinforce memory. All activities build on the mastery of skills, which helps students build self-esteem as they experience success each day.

Who should Attend?
Students who currently are struggling in school and require special accommodations as specified in an IEP or some other educational plan.  


Multisensory Language Training
ASDEC’s Sounds In Syllables teaches phonemic awareness, decoding, fluency, and comprehension procedures that focus attention, improve memory, and reduce anxiety.

Multisensory Math  
Students learn place value, memory of basic facts, and basic operations through games, songs, and other multisensory techniques.
Verbal Expression
Through interactive activities and games, students improve language skills through sentence expansion, categorizing and sequencing activities, and deductive reasoning methods.
