We demonstrate instruction in phonological awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, spelling, and comprehension all within a carefully designed format based on how struggling students learn.

  • Workshop topics include:
  • Characteristics of students with reading difficulties and their instructional needs
  • How to place your students at the appropriate instructional level
  • Integrating multisensory instruction seamlessly
  • Understanding the impact of scope and sequence on skill acquisition
  • Assessment and progress monitoring
  • And much more!
