Reading Resources For Parents

At the Institute for Multi-Sensory Education, our goal is to level the playing field in education. We empower all educators with the tools needed to give all learners the gift of reading.

Research has shown by incorporating direct, explicit, sequential, and systematic instruction in the classroom, students are given the best chance at success. When educators introduce new material and concepts using multi-sensory components and the science of reading, they reach all learners.

How IMSE Can Help

Parents are a child's first teacher. IMSE offers support to parents. Reading does not develop naturally. We know that over 60% of children require direct instruction in order to read proficiently. We can help you help your children in the beginning stages of learning how to read.

IMSE offers several types of training, but our parent resources on YouTube, Instagram, and Facebook are perfect for parents who want to learn more about literacy development. It is essential to understanding how literacy skills are developed and focus on phonological awareness, the most important reading readiness skill for young children.

IMSE is also available to speak or present at local parent or district groups to help raise awareness around the science of reading and the importance of Structured Literacy.

IMSE Practice Books and Resources

If you don't have the time or means to attend an IMSE training, we have many other resources that can assist you. IMSE offers an extensive line of products that help children to write, read, and spell.

From activity books to blending boards and classroom kits, our products can be purchased by anyone.

You will be given instructions for what your child should be working on and when.

IMSE also has a list of tutors that have been certified in the Orton-Gillingham method.

Additionally, our staff and instructors are always adding new content to the IMSE Journal. You will be able to find the latest tips and tricks, education insight, and actionable steps that you can take with your child.
