Literacy Training Workshop Testimonials

Reviews

Dr Lillian Fawcett's Multisensory Literacy Course shared a wealth of relevant information and teaching strategies. Cracking the ABC Code Workshop is an absolute gem for English Literacy Educators who teach students who are struggling with reading and writing, whether this is due to conditions such as dyslexia, processing impairment, trauma or learning English as a Second Language. Fabulous for Pre Primary and Primary Teachers, Secondary School Teachers, Private Tutors, Adult Literacy Educators and parents! Highly recommended. I feel I have definitely acquired a whole new set of teaching skills! Thank you Dr Lillian Fawcett.

I have just attended multisensory literacy training workshop for Cracking the ABC Code. It was a fast-paced day, full of information and expertly led by Julie Tasker. I now feel ready to use the program to help my students.

I have just complete the online multisensory literacy training with Lillian and can't remember a PD where I have learnt so much! The workshop was delivered using Skype and Scribblar, which were very easy to use and effective at delivering the information in a professional manner. Having face-to-face PD in the comfort of my own home was fantastic. I found Lillian to be very approachable and extremely knowledgeable and I'm excited about using the strategies and resources in my everyday teaching as well as in a tutoring role. I highly recommend this workshop.

Testimonial
This was a fantastic course. Although packed with information, I did not feel that I needed to grasp everything at once due to the sequential nature of the program. Facilitated by Julie Tasker - she was relaxed, knowledgeable and reminded us all that she was once in our shoes and made mistakes herself.

WOW! I just came home after completing an amazing day of PD .The "Cracking the ABC Code " multisensory literacy training workshop.
Yes ,it was information overload but a PD all teachers interested in ensuring successful learners should attend.
It was exciting to learn new strategies yet know that the assessment tools that I have been using for years in my teaching career are still the tried and true assessments for finding out a child's level of literacy ability. Lillian is a master and so willing to share her expertise. If you are wondering whether to do this, run to your internet now and sign up.
Well worth every cent and some. Thank you Lillian for a fabulous day of PD. I loved the resource package and all your simple but so effective strategies. Now to put it into action!

I have been a classroom teacher for over 25 years, a Learning Support teacher for over 6 years and a private tutor at various times throughout my career. I have looked for a programme that would systematically and explicitly teach my students how to 'crack the code' of English and have always come up short.... Until now. I am so excited about seeing how the lives of my students with learning differences will be changed for the better as they are given the keys to success through the this programme. Thank you Lillian for developing such an exciting programme. I look forward to telling you of my students success stories in the future.

The teacher training was information packed with hands on experience to help it all sink in. I was lucky enough to attend with Lillian herself and she is an inspiration. He wealth of knowledge and passion is infectious. A well resourced and systematic program that sets students up to succeed.

I recently completed Cracking the ABC code. I loved the training- organised, professionally put together, affordable, and Lillian is really knowledgeable. I love that all the hard work is done with the preprepared materials, rather than grabbing bits from different programs.

As a Speech Pathologist and parent, I am really excited about implementing this program, especially how systematically it builds on previously learnt information.
Highly recommended. Thanks Lillian.

I highly recommend this program for children experiencing literacy difficulties.

I recently attended a 'Cracking The ABC Code' multisensory literacy training workshop in Brisbane which was very informative and one that I would highly recommend. Julie gave very clear explanations and practical advice on how to use this program to support students struggling with reading and spelling. She was most approachable and very helpful with answering any questions that I had regarding the program. I came away from this workshop with some great information on literacy acquisition and some helpful tips for using this program in my tutoring business. I was also able to purchase some of the program's resources. I enjoyed attending this informative workshop and I feel more confident to support the students with the knowledge I have gained concerning this well structured and well resourced program . I am keen to commence using this program to work with those students who need support with reading and spelling. Thank you Julie for a valuable and informative day of learning.

I am working as a tutor for a privatecompany, but we use some of Lillian's material. The workshop helped me put this in context.
Lillian certainly knows her 'stuff' and delivers it in a fast paced, but well organized manner. She is very approachable and answered all questions in depth.
I could do with more!

I did the Cracking the ABC Code Multisensory Literacy Training Course in January through SPELD QLD at Coorparoo. I highly recommend it for children having difficulty with spelling or reading.

Helen Reid   

After attending the multisensory literacy training workshop in Perth I can't wait to start teaching this amazing literacy program. Lillian's delivery of this informative workshop was excellent and she was happy to help with any questions we had. The resources created are second to none and I believe that all children who are struggling with reading and spelling would benefit greatly from this unique program!

Yesterday I attended the multisensory literacy training workshop in Brisbane and I am so excited. I have been teaching 30 years and this was a whole new way of teaching literacy for me. Julie was so passionate about the program and was so patient with all our questions. I am starting with my first students shortly and I really can't wait! Thank you for making this amazing program available.

I've just attended an amazing multisensory literacy training workshop. Lillian took us through the programme showing incredible insight into her knowledge of the course. She was very patient with our constant questions, and very helpful in her tips for teaching. The programme looks great and I can't wait to begin teaching it!

Having completed the ‘Cracking the ABC Code’ multisensory literacy training workshop, I feel confident and well equipped for working with students struggling with literacy. The workshop was highly informative, gave a comprehensive overview of the program and allowed time for the explanation and practice of student assessments. I left with a generous amount of resources and practical strategies for future use.

I recently attended the Multisensory Literacy Course in South Perth and was highly impressed with both the workshop presentation and the powerhouse of information I came away with. Lillian was very approachable and the workshop itself was well-paced and full of relevant information. The delicious morning tea with home made treats was an added bonus!
I have also completed an online course and, again, was highly impressed with the amount of information contained in the modules and with the clear and concise delivery of how to teach Level Two Reading. I am really looking forward to using my new skills in both my class teaching and my private tuition sessions.
Thank you, Lillian!

Pamela Hyde   

Lillian's full day multisensory literacy course was an excellent introduction to her Cracking the ABC Code intervention programme. She explained the theory behind the programme, walked us through the assessment process and showed us how to deliver the lessons. There was also plenty of opportunity to engage with the many resources through hands on activities. There was so much to learn in one day and I found it extremely helpful to later watch the demonstration videos that she has on her website. I now feel confident to teach this programme and am very excited to be part of the Cracking the ABC Code team.

I have recently completed the Cracking The ABC Code workshop and would recommend it to any teacher wanting to gain skills to help their students who are struggling with literacy.

I was familiar with the program having personally completed three Cracking the ABC Code courses with my son who was struggling with reading. With commitment to the program I have seen a dramatic improvement to my son's reading and spelling levels. He is now enjoying reading and learning.

The teacher workshop was fantastic, fast paced but easy to follow. Lillian was a great presenter and I feel very supported by her to begin delivering this program to students of my own.

I am passionate about helping students gain confidence and a love of reading and learning, thank you Lillian for giving me to tools to do so.
