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.
Working with Syllables – Using Syllable Patterns to support the reading and spelling of longer words.
This course relates to the Dyslexia Action Literacy Programme (DALP). No prior knowledge of the programme is needed, though participants are expected to have a working knowledge of a structured, multi-sensory literacy programme or hold a qualification in specialist teaching or speech therapy.
This course covers the sub-skills necessary to ensure learners develop confidence in word attack strategies. It demonstrates methods to introduce the concept of ‘long’ and ‘short’ vowel sounds to learners and how to link this to the decoding of words of more than one syllable. Some common syllable patterns are covered to give practitioners the resources they need to promote the reading and spelling of a wide range of longer words.
The Developing Phonemic Awareness in Learners CPD course is part of a Level 7 SpLD practitioner extension programme and therefore participants must have already qualified as specialist SpLD teachers (ADG Dyslexia Guild or ATS/APS British Dyslexia Association). Suitable qualifying courses include, but are not restricted to:
Individuals who do not meet the criteria but are interested in specialist teaching may apply to the Dyslexia Action Level 5 Diploma in Strategic Teaching Support.
Please note if you select the ‘pay later’ option an additional fee of £25 +VAT will be added to your invoice. All monies must be received before the start of the course.
