    Instructor: Marilyn Zecher

    Based on the Orton-Gillingham philosophy of teaching, Marilyn Zecher's Multisensory Mathematics I applies the research-based Concrete-Representation-Abstract (CRA) approach to teaching mathematics as advocated by the National Math Panel and the NCTM. Participants learn to apply this methodology in guiding students from foundation skills and numeracy to place value, operations, fractions and decimals. Participants learn to use manipulatives effectively to reinforce concepts, aid memory and enhance performance for all students. Strategies for helping students learn and retrieve math facts are stressed as well as structured procedures for computational accuracy. This approach is especially effective with students who learn differently, inclusion classes and ESL learners. The approach is effective for initial instruction as well as remedial work at all levels and is compatible with all curricula and programs.

    Program Dates:
    September 29-December 16, 2018.
    With two 90 minute online sessions with Marilyn Zecher.

    The Atlantic Seaboard Dyslexia Education Center (ASDEC) is pleased to present   K-Reading KickStart Program, developed by Mona Iyer, AMS, CALT, CDT.  Ms. Iyer is an early childhood reading specialist with over 25 years teaching highly successful strategies for reading, writing, handwriting, and spelling.

    K-Reading KickStart integrates foundational Orton-Gillingham instructional methods with highly effective Montessori strategies for multi-sensory learning.  The objective of this program is to provide a strong foundation in reading, writing and comprehension to young learners and provide a path for continued enhancement of reading skills by identifying different learning paths for groups with different learning abilities.  Using evidence-based screeners, teachers will learn how to group students according to their learning needs.
