What is the PRIDE Reading Program?
The PRIDE Reading Program is based on scientific research and years of Orton-Gillingham training and teaching experience at PRIDE Learning Center. PRIDE Learning Center is world renowned for our work with students struggling with their reading and spelling due to common language difficulties such as Dyslexia, Auditory and Visual Processing Disorder, Speech Deficits and other Learning Differences.
At PRIDE, we did not invent Orton-Gillingham instruction, but we have put together what we believe is the most effective and user friendly curriculum that for many children, is the only program that will work. We are confident that you will see amazing results with your child!
PRIDE values each student’s individual learning style.
The PRIDE Learning System is research-based and creates independent and confident students. PRIDE Reading Specialists tap into each child’s learning style through our multisensory program by including touch, vision, kinetic and auditory elements. At PRIDE we are proudly committed to each student, each family, and each outcome.
PRIDE students become independent readers and enthusiastic lifelong learners. With PRIDE you will see:
- Improved Reading
- Increased Self-Confidence
- New Found Motivation For Learning
How does the PRIDE Reading Program Work?
PRIDE Reading Program begins with recognition of the letters, the sounds of the letters, and the sounds of letter combinations. PRIDE is structured, systematic and cumulative. This means that, like a pyramid, the base must first be strong enough to support the entire structure.
After your child receives a strong foundation, they are able to start recognizing words using the skills learned. There are nine to ten different lessons per concept in each of the Introduction, Practice and Reinforcement units. That is twenty-seven opportunities to master the skills before moving to the next. Plus, learned concepts are continuously reviewed as you progress forward through the program.
With the PRIDE Reading Program, you will see improved reading, spelling and comprehension and increased self-confidence. While the program works with all students, it is especially successful for students with dyslexia, auditory and visual processing disorder, speech deficits and other learning differences.

“Pride Learning Center has made such a huge impact on my family, I feel forever indebted and incredibly blessed to have experienced it. My daughter exhibited all the signs of a learning difference, but her schoolteachers were clueless, labeling her as lazy and inattentive. Pride’s website helped to identify my daughter’s specific learning issues. Working with Pride’s team of gifted tutors allowed her to regain confidence in her ability to perform schoolwork. She enjoyed every minute at PRIDE and always looked forward to her lessons.”

“Our daughter Brianna came to Pride when she was struggling with reading during 1st grade at our local public school in West Los Angles. At that point, she was near the bottom of her class and hated to read. After working with Pride’s excellent tutors and staff, Brianna is now ahead of her peers and, more importantly, enjoys reading. Brianna also looks forward to attending her Pride tutor sessions and is proud of her accomplishments. We are lucky to have found Pride when we did, and I would highly recommend its program.”

“Excellent Program. I do Psychoeducational and Neuropsychological Assessments. I have seen a lot of progress with the children that have gone through Pride’s program. It is a great resource that specifically addresses reading difficulties with a multi-sensory approach. It is also important that the people giving the services are well-trained. I highly recommend Pride.”
