"Over holiday break our family was traveling to Nashville. During our trip, Tom was quizzing the kids on how to say different words on signs. Here was the word Tom gave Hudson - Junaluska. I thought to myself there is no way he is going to get this. At first he said 'I have no clue.' Then I said 'Use your Wilson® strategies.' Hudson did and got the word right. We told Hudson how proud we were of him and reinforced just how important Wilson® is because it can really help him if he puts his strategies to work. Thank you for all of the hard work you do everyday. This is an example of your work over the last several years. THANK YOU - THANK YOU!

Wilson Language Training and Wilson® Accredited Partners have received the Accreditation Plus designation by the International Dyslexia Association® (IDA). This designation recognizes that Wilson Reading System® certifications align with the IDA’s Knowledge and Practice Standards for Teachers of Reading.

Noble Academy has been using the highly effective, Wilson Reading System®, for many years. It is a research based, systematic, multisensory approach to reading in which the students are taught the rules of English for reading and spelling in an organized and structured way. It was specifically designed for students with reading and language based disorders such as dyslexia.  

Wilson Language Training® recognizes that students need to be active participants in their own learning and provides teachers with many materials and methods to incorporate multisensory strategies into the lessons. Jenny Rundle, a teacher in our Lower School says, “For me, it solidifies the rules of our English language and provides more of an awareness of the ‘why’ behind what skilled readers do everyday. So many of us automatically respond to unknown words by applying learned skills, but for most of our students these skills need to be explicitly taught. The WRS assists teachers in knowing how best to help our students learn these skills.”
