Reading and Writing Intervention

Date: Thursdays from 2 to 4pm US ET on June 13, 20, 27, July 11, 18, 25, 2024
(90 minutes per session)

Description: We all want our children / students to flourish in their occupational functions of academic proficiency. In the previous tracks we explored the underpinnings of reading and writing as well as the assessment thereof. Now we take a deeper dive with regards to what can be done about it. This workshop is not to promote any specific product, though we would welcome group discussion on what attendees recommend and their reasoning thereof. The information shared would be practical and applied to the developmental continuum discussed in previous tracks. Included in the course material will be practical step by step guides regarding learning to read and write the alphabet through a multisensory approach, building imagination and visualization for comprehension and written expression as well as building sufficient working memory for sustained reading attention and comprehension. The alphabet mastery program can be applied to any language, it is not particular to only English.

Attendees are recommended to view the recorded versions of the previous tracks, though this is not a requirement for this workshop series.  Attendees will be required to prepare a 4 to 5 slide ppt for case study discussion with the group.
