with The Roig Approach via Zoom
Celebrating 13 Summers of Reading!
June 15th - July 24th, 2020
An Intensive Summer Reading Program held Virtually.
The Roig Approach is an individualized multisensory method that integrates the Orton-Gillingham Approach throughout all lessons. The Fast ForWord Program develops and strengthens memory, attention, processing rate, and sequencing - the cognitive skills essential for reading. The strengthening of these skills results in a wide range of improved critical language and reading skills. Teachers on staff at The Roig Academy are trained in multisensory, structured language, and literacy techniques. Due to COVID-19, The Roig Academy is offering this program in a remote environment over Zoom.
Fast ForWord is based on the science of how the brain learns and retains information. It utilizes the principles of neuroscience to exercise and develop the brain's processing efficiency, essential for academic learning and reading success. The strengthening of skills such as memory, attention, processing rate, and sequencing, result in a wide range of improved critical language and reading skills such as phonological awareness, phonemic awareness, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension.
Lessons are tailored to meet the needs of each student throughout this intensive 6-week program which runs from 9:00 am - 12:30 pm EDT. Results will be documented by way of pre and post-tests.
Due to the structure of how The Roig Approach is implemented into this program, space is limited and enrollment closes on June 5th before this 6-week program begins.
Welcome to The Roig Approach
Individualized education deserves to happen year-round.

At The Roig Academy, our staff teaches to the whole child, in both our Neighborhood IB Bilingual Preschool and our IB Day School by engaging in ongoing teacher collaboration and use differentiated instructional techniques that are supported by current and best practices in teaching and learning. These various teaching strategies allow us to foster the development of the whole child encompassing social, physical, emotional and cultural needs as well as academic welfare.
