Direct Instruction method
Direct Instruction (DI) is a defined, free of misinterpretation, teacher-led method based on clear key principles. It is believed that every child can learn and improve academically at their own pace when presented with best teaching and materials. In other words, DI proves that students, if properly taught, can learn. Supported by decades of research, this method of teaching reading, writing, spelling and math has demonstrated to deliver results superior to other methods of instruction. All DI programs have been revised and field tested prior to publishing. In other words, the programs our students receive have already proven to work.
Originally developed by Siegfried Engelmann, the program underwent rigorous testing, having demonstrated its superiority to other intervention programs. Since then, the programs have been in wide use in the US, Canada, the UK and Australia.
Our Direct Instruction programs are typically implemented 1-on-1. Your child’s tutor ensures mastery of the concept and only moves forward if full grasp of material is achieved. Our students make best progress if this kind of intervention is used.
