• Rockwall's Elementary Language Science program uses the multi-sensory curriculum Take Flight: A Comprehensive Intervention for Students with Dyslexia developed by the Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children. The curriculum teaches students with dyslexia specific strategies and techniques to compensate for the difficulties they will face.
    Take Flight addresses the five components of effective reading instruction:
    Phonemic Awareness - explicitly teaches the relationships between speech-sound production and spelling-sound patterns.
    Phonics - provides a systematic approach for single word decoding
    Fluency - uses research-proven directed practice in repeated reading of words, phrases and passages to help students read newly encounter text more fluently.
    Vocabulary - features multiple word learning strategies including understanding of morphological units, word relationships, figurative language, syntax and semantics taught directly with application in text.
    Comprehension - teaches students to use and articulate multiple comprehension strategies such as question generation and answering, summarization and comprehension monitoring.
