    Prosper ISD’s dyslexia therapy, Take Flight, is a comprehensive intervention for students with dyslexia.  It is a curriculum written by the staff of the Luke Waites Center for Dyslexia and Learning Disorders at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children.  Take Flight builds on the success of the three previous dyslexia intervention programs developed by the staff of TSRHC:  Alphabetic Phonics, Dyslexia Training Program, and TSRH Literacy Program.  It combines all three learning modalities (auditory, visual, and kinesthetic) to teach the sound and symbol relationship in the English language.
