Course Description

Credit Validation for Slingerland Participants Only

This course covers a four-week or six-week period of intensive study. It offers training etiology and diagnosis of specific language disability (dyslexia) and provides training in the techniques designed for a preventive and/or remedial program for classroom use. These techniques were developed by Beth H. Slingerland as an adaptation of the multisensory approach originated by Dr. Samuel T. Orton and Anna Gillingham. They are based on upon sound neurological principles of learning. These techniques give the child tools needed to function successfully in all areas of language arts, whether reading, writing, spelling or speaking. Course objectives:

  • To provide instruction in the introductory steps of handwriting, written language, decoding and reading comprehension
  • To develop understanding of the etiology of dyslexia
  • To introduce phonic rules and their application to encoding and decoding
  • To provide understanding of the neurology of language and offer means of developing oral language skills
  • To provide information about the history, philosophy and current research in the field of dyslexia
  • To guide an understanding of the relationship of curriculum and classroom organization to the language arts program
  • To apply multi-sensory teaching principles by daily work with children
