What will you learn? 

The workshop covers all the basics of reading--from the theory of reading and comprehension and the role of the brain’s neuro-diversity in reading acquisition to the nuts and bolts of teaching reading. You will learn how to efficiently and effectively teach reading to all types of learners.

Yes! This is an Orton-Gillingham based program. But it is more than that. Steve Tattum has super-charged OG and taken it to the next leavel.

Facilitator: This is a rare opportunity to learn directly from Steve Tattum, founder of the Tattum Reading program and reading director at LearnUp Centers. Steve has taught over 2,500 teachers to successfully use our reading program in one-on-one, small group and classroom situations.

This one-week intensive will give you the theory, skills, curriculum, hands-on practice, and materials you need you need to teach all emerging readers to read--even those with or without a diagnosis of dyslexia. 

Learn how to teach the entire phonics program in one week! By the end of the week you will be able to teach and deliver the whole reading program from early phonics to comprehension. 

This is significant. Most other training programs require you to complete various levels of training over time to learn all of the program. We can't predict what level of student a teacher will see the week after attending our training, so we want to make sure that they have it all!

Learn how to:

  • Apply reading theory into the practice of reading acquisition
  • Teach reading to all types of emerging readers, including struggling readers, with or without a diagnosis of dyslexia and kids living with ADD/ADHD
  • Teach the 44 reading sounds (including prefixes, roots and suffixes)
  • Adapt the program for one-on-one tutoring, small groups, and for the larger classroom
  • Assess and place students into the 5 Starts (or entry levels) of the program
  • Adapt the program to English Language Learners
  • Teach students how to comprehend, interpret and present information from their reading
