This Specialist SpLD Practitioner CPD extension course has been developed to extend the knowledge-base and skills of specialist practitioners in important areas of practice.
Using Morphology to Enhance Reading Comprehension
(A Structured Approach)
This online course is suitable for qualified specialist SpLD teachers who have been previously trained to use a multisensory literacy programme and who are looking to refresh and update their teaching practice.
The course has been developed to provide an in-depth and structured approach to the use of units of meaning to promote vocabulary and reading comprehension skills in learners in both individual and group teaching sessions.
Please note that this course does not train teachers as dyslexia/SpLD specialists or involve a teaching practicum. This training is covered in the Dyslexia Action Professional Certificate in Structured Teaching Intervention (at Masters Level 7) and in the Dyslexia Action Certificate in Strategic Teaching Support for Dyslexia and Literacy at Level 5.
The Using Morphology to Enhance Reading Comprehension course gives practitioners the opportunity to study and reflect upon a range of affixes and word-roots, which build cumulatively to give a structured understanding of how to strategically support reading comprehension using morphological units.
The materials provided in the morphology course are designed to give specialist practitioners the knowledge, strategies, and materials they need to conduct interactive word-building and word-exploration sessions. The materials for each masterclass can be adapted by the user to suit learners of all ages including adults in a range of settings.
The course is made up of two parts:
