Topics Taught
  • Neurology, Physiology, Speech and Language in association with Dyslexia
  • Psycho-educational testing for recognition of Dyslexic students and their very own profile for preparing diagnostic and prescriptive instruction are taught.
  • Phonological cognizance and phonological segmentation, orthographic features, decoding, syllable types, syllable dividing, spelling generalizations, syntax and the sound/symbol associations within the English Language for language re-training.

Trainees are taught to think on their own concerning the dyslexic student's characteristics and needs. An overview of the history of the field of dyslexia starting with the English school physician, W. Pringle Morgan, in 1896, and continuing through current fMRI's and PET scans is provided.

Participants are taught to understand psycho-educational test outcomes, such as The Wechsler Intelligence Tests, as well as the Woodcock Johnson Achievement Tests. Usage of screening tests, including the Gallistel-Ellis Test of Coding Skills, The Gates-MacGinitie Silent Reading Tests, New Stanford Spelling Test, along with the Ayers Spelling Scale are taught.

Teachers are instructed on the art of individualizing lessons while remaining true to a structured, multisensory sequential lesson application. This strategy treats all written language (reading, spelling, handwriting, and composition) as interrelated disciplines. Personalized prescriptive instructing demands simultaneously using the visual, auditory, and kinesthetic pathways to learning.

Teaching phonological awareness skills, as well as the orthographic attributes of the Code of the English language are essential and demand a thorough knowledge of linguistics, syllable patterns, spelling rules and generalizations.

Teaching dyslexic students is simply too complex to attempt without having a mentor. This Institute will begin you upon the way to proficiency in "teaching out" the reading disability,and  ameliorating the spelling and handwriting challenges.

This original, authentic, diagnostic-prescriptive and linguistic Teacher Education Institute/Workshop satisfies the course work requirements for the Associate Level membership in The Academy of Orton-Gillingham Practitioners and Educators (AOGPE) and for the Teaching level, International Multisensory Structured Language Education Council (IMSLEC). The training is accredited by both accrediting bodies and offers 6.5 renewal credits for NC teacher licensure.
