For more information or to register for this training, visit: https://www.cahelp.org/

Do your students struggle with literacy? Do you have struggling readers in your class? In this course, participants will first be provided with a brief overview related to the reading brain and dyslexia. Then, participants will take a deep dive into structured literacy, an instructional approach used to explicitly, systematically/cumulatively, and diagnostically teach reading. The term was coined by the International Dyslexia Association to encompass evidence-based approaches (e.g., Orton Gillingham) and programs that are aligned to the Knowledge and Practice Standards for Teachers of Reading. Participants will walk away with an understanding of structured literacy and how to apply it through explicit, multi-sensory, structured, sequential, comprehensive, and cumulative instruction.

Intended Audience

General education teachers, special education teachers, speech-language pathologists, and administrators.

Structured Literacy with Orton-Gillingham: Advanced ACADEMIC SUPPORTS

For more information or to register for this training, visit: https://www.cahelp.org/

How is Structured Literacy tackled using the Orton-Gillingham (OG) methodology with students third to fourth grade on up who still need foundational reading skills? OG is an approach to reading that is multi-sensory, phonetic alphabetic, analytic, structured, sequential, repetitive, cumulative, diagnostic and prescriptive. This course focuses on developing an OG lesson plan that primarily focuses on concepts of orthography, syllabication, and morphology. Vocabulary and comprehension will also be discussed in relation to the OG approach. Must take either Structured Literacy or Honk! Honk! Stop, Assess, and Drive Your Reading Instruction trainings in order to attend this training.
