This drawing has expired.  Check back soon for our November giveaway announcement!

October is National Dyslexia Awareness month, a month when parents, students, educators and other professionals raise public awareness about dyslexia.  The International Dyslexia Association reports that nearly 15-20% of the population show some signs of dyslexia.  Some common signs include difficulty learning to speak, organizing written and spoken language, learning letters and their sounds, spelling, and reading.

In honor of National Dyslexia Awareness month, EPS is holding a drawing where one lucky winner will receive a S.P.I.R.E.® Level Set.  See details below.

S.P.I.R.E.® is a comprehensive and multisensory reading intervention program designed to prevent reading failure and to build reading success through an intensive, structured, and spiraling curriculum.  It integrates phonological awareness, phonics, handwriting, fluency, vocabulary, spelling, and comprehension in a 10-Step lesson plan that is specifically designed for the way struggling readers learn.  The set is valued at $250!

Each set includes 1 Teacher’s Guide, 1 Blackline Master, 6 Student Readers, 6 Workbooks, and 1 set of Word Cards for the level, plus a corresponding set of Large Phonogram Cards, in a convenient storage box.

S.P.I.R.E.® is easy for any educator to implement.  Teacher’s Guides for every level provide explicit, detailed instruction and scripting for all lessons to support teachers at every step.

S.P.I.R.E.® instruction is matched to student need. Abundant resources for continuous assessment and reinforcement ensure every student has what is needed to master skills.

S.P.I.R.E.® Professional Development Workshops deliver the powerful, systematic instruction that can help you experience unprecedented results.

Entering is easy!  Simply provide your name and email address below and click “Submit.”  Your entry must be submitted by Thursday, October 25th, 11:59 p.m. Eastern time.  We’ll select a winner using www.random.org on Friday, October 26th.  Winner will be notified by email and announced on the EPS Facebook  and Twitter feeds.  Be assured that we will never provide your name and email address to a third-party.  Good luck!

    This would REALLY be a great thing for my struggling almost-9th graders….

    I could honestly benefit from this program. Not only could I use it in my classroom, my daughter has dyslexia and I understand what a difference this program could make in her learning capabilities.

      Would love to receive this for interventions. This would be so beneficial especially with our special needs population and lack of resources.

      Thanks for sharing this aspect of the program’s potential Milynda. Good luck!

    My high school students who struggle with reading could really benefit from a program like this!

  • 11. Glenn Callaway  |  October 18, 2012 at 9:46 pm

    This looks like a great program that my Multi-Culture students could benefit from.

  • 13. Mary Paris  |  October 19, 2012 at 12:35 pm

    I currently use several programs to meet the needs of my struggling readers. I love that this program incorporates all facets of reading. It is just what I have been looking for!

    We are in need of research based interventions and this would help our Title 1 school greatly.

    This sounds great. My great-nephew is dyslexic, but very bright. He is so frustrated because he can’t read and nothing is being done for him at school. I teach primary math to struggling students, so hope you have something for that.

    • 18. epsliteracyandintervention  |  October 22, 2012 at 12:52 pm

      Thank you for your feedback Janice! Glad to hear that you think this product might help your great-nephew.

    “There’s no place like EPS…There’s no place like EPS…There’s no place like EPS.” Dorothy used this thought to go home, and I’m using this thought to bring those Spire readers home to me!

    We are a very small district. We have a k-12 building with very limited funds. I would love to have this program to use and share with all of my fellow teachers across the grade levels.

  • 22. Jen Miller  |  October 25, 2012 at 5:45 pm

    This would be terrific to win! We have several students this year that could definitely benefit!

    I have a student that could use some early help. Her parents and brother have dyxlesia.
