Direct instruction is presented as a systematized curriculum. It is oriented towards student's skill proficiency rather than age or grade level. Assessments are embedded into the curriculum so that the program is customized to the learner's needs. At bitKIDS, we use the Direct Instruction curriculum to generalize the development of language skills required for learning in a classroom setting as well as to provide direct teaching of reading and math skills. This can be used as a stand-alone treatment, but most often it is used as one part of a learner's individualized programming.
Direct Instruction might be for you if:
- Your child excels when academic skills are broken down into small parts
- Your child is struggling to make progress within the current academic curriculum provided at school
- Your child would benefit from 1:1 or small group teaching to solidify math and reading skills
- Your child would benefit from generalization of language skills to prepare for the numerous ways that tasks will be discussed in a busy classroom setting
- Your child requires a tailored curriculum to meet their needs.
