  • The workshop will be of particular interest to teachers and other professionals working with students (especially one-on-one) who are struggling with reading and spelling, including students diagnosed with dyslexia.  However, many of the strategies are applicable to the classroom.
  • It is a fast paced, comprehensive workshop, so come prepared to learn a lot.

The research consistently shows that students with literacy difficulties benefit most from programs that systematically teach phonics in a structured, multisensory format and are evidence based.  In addition to meeting this core criteria, the Cracking the ABC Code resources:

  1. Rapidly improve students’ reading and spelling skills.  On average students completing a 12 week program improve 12 months in spelling and 18 months in reading accuracy and comprehension.
  2. Incorporate strategies from the memory research to ensure that the material is learned and remembered (e.g., is truly multisensory, uses picture cues, links new knowledge to existing knowledge, all the components interlink and repetition is built into the programs).
  3. Explicitly teach higher-order orthographic knowledge (e.g., prefixes, suffixes, root words, spelling rules, etc).
  4. Help develop students’ processing speed and working memory, two areas of common weakness among students with learning difficulties.
  5. Cover all aspects of literacy – reading, spelling and writing.

PLUS the resources are very reasonably priced comparative to other programs of this calibre & are suitable for all ages from young students through to adolescents and illiterate adults.
