TIME is committed to providing evidence-based intervention (EBI) programs to students, families, and schools, with the goal of enhancing the quality of education for all students. EBI is based upon the best available research delivered with consideration of a student’s unique characteristics, language, culture, and values.
TIME is proud to be a part of helping schools provide services for children with special needs. Specially designed interventions programs are provided for students in need of special education. We work together as a team to support schools and parents with the implementation of a plan to meet the challenges facing children who have been identified as having a disability.
Our intervention programs are designed to be provided to a wide range of students: average students, gifted students, students who may have learning disabilities such as dyslexia, and students with challenges in attention or behavior. The goals of the intervention plan are to address and remediate whatever is interfering with a student reaching his or her highest level of proficiency.

VRC teaches students to comprehend grade level text and to read that text fluently. An VRC student first becomes proficient in phonological awareness and phonics skills if needed. When a student demonstrates accurate decoding skills, he also receives vocabulary and grammar and meaning instruction.
Finally, VRC delivers explicitly fluency training to improve silent reading rate. Improvement in comprehension and fluency are simultaneous goals. The interactive activities help students stay focused and accelerate their progress.VRC is Embedded Teacher Intelligence using methods and strategies of successful reading teachers and speech pathologists. Each student works toward 100% mastery at his or her own pace.

Grammar for meaning
Phonic Reading Lessons program consists of two-volumes: Skills and Practice, and contains one hundred lessons. Phonic Reading Lessons are: (a) systematic and provides a step-by-step procedure for teaching phonics and reinforcing grapheme–phoneme relationships, (b) easy for teachers to learn, and (c) appropriate for older students.
The sounds are introduced one at a time in the Skills book in a variety of words so that the student develops an automatic response to each symbol. The Practice book supports and reinforces the lessons from the Skills book through the use of story reading and spelling practice. As a supplement to reading, the student is asked to write words while carefully pronouncing each sound. Thus, the student learns how to blend, segment, and sequence sounds and represent these sounds with the most common graphemes.
