Lexercise and Take Flight are both approved programs by the International Dyslexia Association (IDA). Based on the Orton Gillingham and Structured Literacy approaches, below is a quick summary of what your student will learn.

Phonological Awareness

Sound-Symbol Association

Understanding how sounds map to written letter patterns (phonics).

Syllable Instruction

English has 6 main syllable types that need to be directly taught and practiced.


The study of prefixes, roots, base words, and suffixes, and how they form meaning in our words.


The study of grammar and crafting words and phrases into well-formed sentences.


Vocabulary and how words are used to create meaning in our language.

Lexercise is a unique structured literacy experience. Lexercise uses a combination of a live direct instruction session along with responsive game technology to provide controlled daily practice.

Lessons and practices are fully tailored to meet your child's individual needs.

Data from weekly practice and lessons allows our certified dyslexia therapists to provide a truly individualized dyslexia intervention. 

Virtual Multisensory Sessions

45-minute weekly sessions are done through one-to-one Zoom sessions that engage students in a multisensory lesson. Virtual sessions are ideal for busy families as you don't have to leave the comfort of home. All you need is a webcam and internet access for the weekly session and daily work.

Controlled Daily Practice

A daily practice plan overseen by your clinician is available to provide mastery practice.

We know that repetition is key for students with dyslexia, and Lexercise's unique game format delivers a maximum amount of practice in as little as 15 min. each day.

Also, Parents/guardians have access to activities that provide additional mastery and repetition work. By engaging you as the parent in the process, you get to be a part of helping your child develop the tools they need to become independent readers and spellers.


Lexercise is the most affordable choice for dyslexia therapy where you still work directly with an expert in the field. You can also use your flexible health spending account funds to cover the cost.

Take Flight

Take Flight is a two-year curriculum written by the staff of the Luke Waites Center for Dyslexia and Learning Disorders at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children.  

Expert Instruction Led by CALTs

Your child will receive therapy sessions from fully Certified Academic Language Therapists (CALT).  We do not use trainees to provide Take Flight, so you can be assured that your child will receive the highest quality therapeutic intervention.  

During the first session, we will provide baseline assessments that will allow us to track mastery and progress during the course of the Take Flight lessons.

Traditional Session Structure

Take Flight consists of 7 workbooks, where students receive direct instruction in the concepts of Structured Literacy during 4 - 60 min. sessions per week.  Sessions can be done in person or in a virtual format.
