RWSR tutor community

With the Read Write Spell Right tutor community, we’re creating a unique private space for dyslexia tutors. The common thread for many of us is our Barton tutoring experience — but there’s more to it than that.

We can all agree that the principles developed by Orton and Gillingham continue to work for many of our students. However, all seasoned Barton tutors can also point to those who simply do not progress well with this method alone.

Add to that the fact that once you’ve achieved all three tutor certifications, there is nowhere else to go within the Barton training structure.

So here is a unique neutral space for those professionals among us committed to keeping an open mind, staying abreast of the research, and exploring new — often really new! — ways to support all our students. This non-partisan community’s key focus is on our professional development.

To get the best from this community, you’ll have tutored to Barton level 6 at a minimum, and ideally beyond, but you do not need to be Barton-certified. Dyslexia tutors with the same level of experience in other modalities are also very welcome. 

Open and honest discussions

While no topic is off-limits — provided it’s directly related to dyslexia remediation — the Read Write Spell Right forum is deliberately structured with a degree of formality to help us all maintain the highest standards.

Our discussions take place with respect and with the understanding that we all share an overarching willingness to listen and learn as part of our continuing professional development — and we agree upfront that no one program can ever work for every student.

So why not just have these conversations on social media?

Because that’s somebody else’s discussion taking place on somebody else’s platform and we can all relate to being politely asked to ‘stay on topic’ before commenting is turned off just when it’s getting interesting. Freedom from those constraints is only one excellent reason to join us in the Read Write Spell Right tutors’ forum. Here are a few more:
