Barton Reading and Spelling System

The Barton Reading and Spelling Program works!  This exceptional program was released in 1999 and has been proven to be highly effective in several independent, scientific research-based studies. The Barton System is an Orton-Gillingham based approach, which is often called "Structured Literacy" and is best taught one-on-one.

Approved by the Colorado Department of Education 

Includes teaching in fluency, vocabulary, comprehension, grammar, phonics, and phonemic awareness in every single session


Meets the National Institute of Health description of best practices for students with dyslexia

How do I begin?

The first step is to email us or call us at 970-460-6771. We will chat with you about your questions and see if our programs are a good fit for you or your child.  


If so, then we will schedule a time to meet in person (ON ZOOM) so you can see the curriculum and ask further questions.  We also will give you ideas for the best accommodations to be used in the classroom, home, or workplace.


Then, we will match you or your child with one of our well-trained tutors, and we will begin the program, which is 2-3 times per week for 24-36 months, depending on the severity level of the reading difficulties.
