How do I know if Basic Language Skills is appropriate for my child?

After your child has been tested by a professional for learning difficulties, the evaluator will make recommendations about what remediation is needed. Basic Language Skills (BLS) would be appropriate if the recommendations included such things as: working on decoding skills; using an Orton-Gillingham-based curriculum; learning Alphabetic Phonics; using a multisensory curriculum or strategies; learning with a strong phonetic approach to reading, etc. BLS is appropriate because it integrates all the above with comprehensive instruction in decoding, handwriting, spelling, fluency, reading comprehension, composition, and vocabulary.
