This workshop is designed to offer support and meaningful instruction for parents, educators and tutors working with pre-readers, beginning and struggling readers, as well as those diagnosed with dyslexia or Specific Learning Disability (SLD).
Introduction to ‘Helpful Hints for Reading’: Learn the code that builds the English language & offers a map for emerging readers to unlock the written word. This session uses our Helpful Hints for Reading manual to explore letter sounds, the 6 syllable types (with an emphasis on Open, Closed & -VCe) and the three most common dividing patterns (V.CV, VC.V and VC.CV).
Dyslexia Simulation: Experience what it feels like to be a struggling reader. Learn the basics of multi-sensory education, why this approach is useful for all students and a must for dyslexic learners.
