Multisensory Instruction Matters: developing decoding & spelling abilities in struggling readers

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
How do you work with the students who are at risk of, or diagnosed with a reading or writing learning disability? Your struggling reader and speller has had extensive phonological awareness intervention and yet is still not progressing very quickly in his/her reading and spelling skills. Extensive research shows that an explicit, systematic, and simultaneous multisensory reading program can be an effective approach for these students. Learn the basics of what this could look like in your guided reading sessions or even in a whole class mini lesson. Following the long standing renowned and heavily researched Orton-Gillingham approach you will be introduced to how to help make a guided reading session work for your struggling students as well as compliment your own teaching strategies in the classroom. You will learn how to connect your students' visual, auditory and kinesthetic learning pathways while learning useful word patterns and spelling generalizations. The program places an emphasis on phonemic skills while maintaining the phonological awareness basics, fluency, and comprehension.
