Language Enrichment Reading Program
The Language Enrichment multisensory reading program is an Orton-Gillingham program that meets the requirements of the Response to Intervention (RTI) federal mandate by giving regular classroom teachers, special education teachers and intervention specialists the tools to teach an effective research-based reading inclusion program.
This reading curriculum allows teachers to return to the classroom and implement a three-year curriculum that is consistent with the requirements set forth in Reading First legislation and incorporates the five components deems necessary by the National Reading Panel:
- Phonemic Awareness

Mandates & Common Core
Multisensory Teaching works with area school districts to train elementary school and special education teachers. This program allows teachers to implement a three-year curriculum that is consistent with the requirements set forth in Reading First legislation and aligns with the ELA Common Core standards. It incorporates the five components deemed necessary by the National Reading Panel:
- Phonological Awareness (Reading Standards)
- Phonics & Word Recognition (Reading Standards)
- Fluency (Reading Standards)

- I found the Language Enrichment program to be a logical program for teaching reading. It is very child-friendly and the multisensory aspect is well-developed for this purpose. The Language Enrichment class itself was well organized, using a clear and concise teaching method, and filled with great advice from Alison, a well-learned professional.Stephanie FrostBloomington, NY
- After leaving the teaching profession over a decade ago, I felt ill equipped to teach children how to read. Language Enrichment was the tool I was missing. Now I'm back in the classroom! LE is a highly effective reading technique and builds confidence in the children, not to mention their teacher. I would recommend LE to anyone who teaches children how to read.Kari ScottSaugerties, NY
- As the Lower School Coordinator in an independent school, I have chosen Language Enrichment as our core literacy program. I have found this program to be excellent, easy to implement and consistent with the findings of the National Reading Panel. As a First grade teacher with 20 years of experience, it is refreshing to finally have a classroom approach that is evidence-based.Doris Gonzales-EastonKingston, NY
- I am writing to let you know how much I appreciated the four-day Language Enrichment course that I was lucky enough to attend. To be together with the other teachers from the community I'm part of, as well as Kristin, Doris, Cheryl and you gave me a greater appreciation for the work educationalists have put into integrating alternate learners to a normal classroom setting. I wish you much luck as you continue to promote this child-friendly method of teaching reading.Lizzi BrinkmannRifton, NY
- As a teacher with over 20 years experience, I am excited to be teaching this comprehensive Language Enrichment program in the Kindergarten classroom. Language Enrichment addresses my students' needs and I am now confident in their success as they progress through the program. I feel secure in the knowledge that it meets the five components deemed necessary under Reading First legislation.Kristin SchroderChichester, NY
