The Kendore Kingdom Dyslexia Reading Specialist Training workshop presents a comprehensive approach to teaching reading, writing, and spelling across the curriculum. The Indiana Department of Education has approved our program for teachers seeking training as an Authorized Reading Specialist Trained in Dyslexia. This approach makes it possible to meet your Response to Intervention (RtI) needs whether implementing in a Tier I, Tier II, or Tier III setting.
The Kendore Kingdom is a complete, Orton-Gillingham based Structured Literacy K-2 curriculum. You will learn the skills necessary to teach:
- Phonemic Awareness
- Alphabetic Principle (Phonics)
This workshop uses methods that support classroom and special education teachers, reading specialists, paraprofessionals, and parents in presenting reading instruction. Teachers and students become involved in a process of learning in a fun, yet cognitive way that lasts a lifetime. Continuous assessments guide educators in making decisions regarding implementation for a differentiated delivery model.
Day four of this workshop includes Multisensory Spelling, where we will teach you 12 unforgettable rules that will remove, "that's just something you have to memorize" from your lexicon. These simple rules are presented in a fun, clock face story format and enable students to successfully spell thousands of words. Make memorizing word lists a thing of the past and leave with strategies and materials you can use immediately with students of any age.
