EXPLICIT PHONOGRAPHIC INSTRUCTION - THE ULTIMATE TOOL FOR LEARNERS WITH DYSLEXIA

Speaker: Denyse Ritchie
Principal at the THRASS Institute

Session Overview
Teaching letter sounds, initial sounds or SATPIN is the starting point for literacy teaching used by thousands of schools in Australia and is the point at which many learners with Dyslexia are left behind. The unsustainable and contradictory nature of these teaching programs is the reason many learners become confused, struggle and ultimately fail in reading and writing.

This session will compare a phono-graphic approach (speech to print) and a grapho-phonic approach (print to speech) and show how the phonics teaching paradigm must shift in order to work with, not against, Dyslexia learning strengths.
