Barton Reading and Spelling
Susan Barton
Barton Reading and Spelling is intended for learners who have some form of dyslexia (which can range from mild to profound). If your child is having any challenge learning how to read, please visit www.brightsoultions.us to learn more about dyslexia. Susan Barton has provided many free online seminars and videos to watch for free. They are very informative! But onto the curriculum review. As taken from Bartonreading.com: ''The Barton Reading & Spelling System is a one-on-one tutoring system that will greatly improve the spelling, reading, and writing skills of children, teenagers or adults who struggle due to dyslexia or a learning disability.'' Barton is Orton-Gillingham based. This in and of itself is imperative for the dyslexic learner! Susan has put together a tutoring system that is thorough, systematic, hands-on, engaging, and much more! I cannot say enough positive things about this program! But it gets better...their customer service is exemplary! Even if you didn't purchase your level (there are 10 levels total) from them directly, they will still talk to you and guide you along the way. They do not push you to purchase brand new from them, and even give you information on reputable sources to purchase used! Yes, this system is not inexpensive. However, think of it this way. You can sell it used and recoup about 75% of what you spent. Also, if you were to have a Certified Barton Tutor teach your child, you would spend thousands of dollars. Finally, one could keep spending hundreds of dollars on reading curriculum that will not work for the dyslexic learner. Barton works!
