This five-day Yoshimoto training will focus on a data-driven, clinical, multisensory, phonetic, teacher-guided Orton-Gillingham approach to teaching reading, writing, and spelling in whole classroom, small group and one-to-one settings. Upon completing this course participants will have acquired the skills necessary to fully implement this data-driven solution for teaching reading to all students.
The course will cover the three levels of decoding and spelling: sound, syllable, and morphological. With the latter, introductory morphology, the emphasis will be on increasing the vocabulary for all children – general and special education students. Further, the system supports the outcomes within the Common Core.
Note: All training course materials, including extensive teacher resources, are included in the cost of the course.
