Empower yourself and your students
INTRODUCTORY DYSLEXIA TRAINING
Next Class: Summer 2023
This course is guided by the tenants of Structured Literacy (also known as Multisensory Structured Language Education or Orton-Gillingham). Taught as an approach to include the Five Pillars of Literacy (Phonemic Awareness, Phonics, Fluency, Vocabulary, and Comprehension), you will learn to collect data on your student, then create prescriptive lessons while receiving meaningful feedback from the instructors. This instruction is crucial for our most at-risk students and is provided in a emotionally sound, honest, success driven environment.
ADVANCED DYSLEXIA TRAINING
Next class: January 2024
Continue your learning beyond the one-year introductory class to support our most at-risk students. Topics covered in this course include advanced phonics instruction, fluency practices, vocabulary building, written expression, advanced morphology, and assessment interpretation. Teachers will be able to implement knowledge into any existing curricula while receiving meaningful feedback from a Qualified Instructor throughout the 16 month course.
Expert Guidance from a Qualified Instructor
A Certified Academic Language Practitioner is the credential given to a teacher who has completed a year-long, rigorous, structured literacy course in research-based curricula that includes explicit, systematic, cumulative instruction.
As outlined by the International Multisensory Structured Language Education Council (IMSLEC), participants will learn an Orton-Gillingham based approach. Teachers will commit to 50-hours of dyslexia instruction and will be observed implementing this approach with a practicum student over the course of the year to receive constructive feedback to hone skills and knowledge.
