This course prepares candidates for certification as Academic Language Practitioners (aka Licensed Dyslexia Practitioners).
Language Foundations (also known as “Structured Language Basics – SLB) is an Orton-Gillingham based multisensory approach to teaching reading-language arts skills in an inclusive classroom. This curriculum is equally successful with elementary, secondary, and adult students for whom reading and spelling present significant problems. More importantly, the use of Language Foundations in the primary grades can act as a preventative measure for difficulty with reading and spelling in the later grades.
