Strengthen Your Dyslexia Programs with a Digital, Evidence-Based Curriculum
Build a comprehensive, integrated language arts program for English-speaking students identified with dyslexia using a digital version of the Multisensory Teaching Approach (MTA), an evidence-based curriculum based on the Orton-Gillingham approach.
What is dyslexia?
Students identified with dyslexia may have difficulty reading with reading accuracy and fluency. Additionally, they may struggle with reading comprehension, spelling, and writing. Students with dyslexia often feel a diminished sense of self-worth due to these difficulties.

Built for Students with Dyslexia and their Educators
Developed by Margaret Taylor Smith, MTA utilizes guided discovery and multisensory techniques to introduce, review, and practice skills.
MTA was field-tested for nine years in both public and private school settings. In a four-year trend analysis study conducted with remedial and non-remedial students in reading and spelling that was published in Annals of Dyslexia (a publication of the International Dyslexia Association), results showed progress in both areas, some at highly significant levels.
Students Identified with Dyslexia Can Close the Gap
Preliminary internal data on reading progress for over 340 students shows that students using the Amplio Learning Platform have improved significantly in their Words Correct per Minute, week over week. To measure progress, students read two reading probes, based on current reading objectives. The stories vary in complexity, such that each subsequent story contains additional concepts and is more complex than the previous story, thus it is likely that students using Amplio have made greater strides than what is shown in the chart.
Average WCPM (words correct per minute) in grades 5-8 is ~140
Students’ WCPM grows at a rate of ~0.5 per week, or 20 per year on average
Struggling readers’ (at or below 10th percentile) WCPM is 0-70
Initial data indicates that Amplio students’ WCPM grows at a rate of 2-5 per week
More Students Using Amplio Can Pass MTA Mastery Checks
MTA’s techniques involve students as active participants in their own learning process. Mastery checks are administered on a regular basis to determine when a student may advance to the next kit in the curriculum. Based on Amplio internal measurements and data collection, over 70 percent of students who received 25 or more sessions via the Amplio Learning Platform advanced to the subsequent kit.
The MTA curriculum is structured in 7 kits, with mastery checks required to progress between kits
Initial data indicates that students receiving consistent, intensive intervention using Amplio, are more likely to master kit content and progress to the next kit
70% of the students receiving at least 25 sessions in a kit using Amplio (typically over 6-8 weeks), master the kit content and progress to the next kit
