The Nuts and Bolts of Reading
Practical Strategies and Activities to Fill your Toolbox (and it will be full)!
August 22-23, 2019
Scottish Rite Charitable Foundation
Learning Centre for Children
No one is born knowing how to read – we all had to learn. For some, that process seems effortless; for others, it’s a genuine struggle that can impact self esteem and baffle both parents and educators.
Rooted in the evidence based, Orton Gillingham approach, this workshop will explore how to support these students through components of structured literacy. Come learn how to teach students to decode words in an explicit and systematic manner. This approach not only helps students who have been identified with a learning disability, but there is substantial evidence that it is more effective for all readers.
Who will benefit from this workshop? Teachers, parents looking for ways to support their children at home, speech language pathologists, psychologists, educational assistants, and university students pursuing studies in education.
When? Thursday and Friday, August 22-23, from 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM
Where? Learning Centre for Children, 103, 2915 – 21 St. NE, Calgary
What is the cost? Early-bird by April 30, 2019 $175. Post April 30, 2019 $195.
Includes coffee breaks, lunches and materials.
