Reading and Writing Summer Classes Coming to Riverside
The premier method for helping students who struggle with reading and writing coming to Riverside July 18th
When in elementary school, Eli wrote, (sic) “I hate my life because it is unfar and no fun being how I am. I cam not right ore spell ore math ore study.” However, years later, while in college he wrote about all the hard work stating, “I have no bitterness. It’s helped a lot – and I now know I can do it. I can fit in everybody else’s world even though I am different”.
A lack of bitterness and having an understanding of his own strengths and weaknesses has helped preserve Eli’s self-esteem. This is the primary characteristic of a successful student with literacy issues and it is the one that differentiates between being successful or not.
The Orton-Gillingham Multisensory Training Method is the premier method for helping students to develop the strategies that will increase their success with reading and writing. By learning these strategies, teachers and therapists and tutors will expand and develop a wonderful tool kit to help any child who may struggle – and with tools that will supplement any existing reading program. Simultaneously, they provide the student with strategies for success!
A fellow from the Academy of Orton-Gillingham Practitioners and Educators, Dr. Joan Stoner, will be coming to Riverside July 18th to lead this two-week class, which includes a practicum (one-on-one with a student, with help from Joan as needed). This is a unique and valuable opportunity for any teacher interested in helping increase literacy in students.
