If your student struggles with reading and learning difficulties, they are not alone: Reading disabilities affect at least 10 million children or approximately 1 child in 5. In fact, two-thirds of high school students with learning disabilities are reading three or more grade levels behind. Furthermore, a staggering 20 percent are reading five or more grade levels behind.
Fortunately, RITES multisensory learning offers proven improvements for your struggling student. In fact, with more than two decades of experience, the results of this approach speak for themselves. Using a multisensory approach, RITES transforms struggling students into successful learners, and sets them up for success!
What is ‘Multisensory Approach’?
Multisensory learning uses all learning pathways at the same time to enhance memory and learning. Thus, students actively learn skills through visual, hands-on, and auditory lessons.
Evidence shows that students learn best when they process new information by simultaneously:
- Seeing it
- Hearing it
- Feeling it and/or “moving” with it
It is important to note that using multisensory learning allows the brain to learn skills in a way that makes it easier to remember.
For example, a highly successful multisensory learning approach used at RITES includes Orton-Gillingham, a multisensory structured language program for students of all ages who have difficulty with reading, writing, and spelling.

Benefits for Parents and Rhode Island Students
The RITES Multisensory Learning Programs make a positive difference for students of all ages, year after year. Here’s what local parents have said about their experience with the RITES multisensory learning programs:
“Reading comprehension has always been a strength, but significant improvement is noted in Moira’s decoding and fluency. She is approaching grade level expectations! What a change since September. Never in my 26 years of teaching have I witnessed so much progress in so little time.”
“This program covered tons of material, from vocabulary to spelling, with individualized instruction, based on thorough assessment and reinforced with strategies best used by dyslexics. Worth every penny in confidence gained!”
“The RITES/Hamilton Summer Program is one of a kind – where else can you get a dynamic, interactive, fun, academic program for learning disabilities and ADHD? Thank you for existing – we are eternally grateful!”
