Student Identification

The Wilson Reading System® (WRS) is widely used with elementary school students, adolescents, and adults who have not yet been successful learning how to read and write. Many students who benefit from WRS have deficiencies in phonological awareness and/or orthographic processing, which makes it challenging to learn to read and spell without an explicit, systematic, and multisensory approach.
