This class covers the theory of Science of Reading/structured literacy and the practical approach of multisensory/multimodal instruction developed by Beth H. Slingerland.

The Slingerland® Approach Multisensory Structured Language Comprehensive Classes are based on an adaptation by Beth H. Slingerland of the multisensory approach of Dr. Samuel T. Orton and Anna Gillingham. The techniques she developed are based on sound neurological principles of learning and give children the necessary tools to be successful readers, writers, and spellers.

The class includes a practicum with students, demonstrations, and observations.  This intensive class of study includes instructional techniques in handwriting, written language, decoding, and reading comprehension.


Continuum Comprehensive

This class is traditionally offered as a 4-week period of intensive study with a practicum. After a review of the introductory class, participants will be introduced to and practice more advanced techniques in the language arts continuum. The use of the dictation paragraph and the screening procedures for identifying students will also be presented.

Class content includes:

  • Guided observation of the evaluative and prescriptive elements embedded in the daily plan
  • Knowledge of how oral language skills relate to writing and reading skills
  • Studying the vertical and horizontal use of the format for instruction
  • How to integrate a new learning throughout the format
  • Critical thinking skills needed for reading, writing and speaking
  • Current research in all aspects of dyslexia
  • How to administer and evaluate the Slingerland® Screening materials

Classes are accredited through the International Multisensory Structured Language Education Council (IMSLEC).
