Ron Yoshimoto - OG Basic Four Day Course
Hobart, April 2020. https://www.trybooking.com/book/event?eid=536426
The four day Yoshimoto O.G. training will focus on a data-driven, clinical, multisensory, phonetic, teacher guided Orton-Gillingham approach to teaching reading, writing and spelling in a whole classroom, small group and one-to-one settings. Upon completing this course participants will have acquired the skills necessary to fully implement this data-driven solution for teaching reading to all students.
The course will cover the three levels of decoding and spelling: sound, syllable, and morphological. With the latter, introductory morphology, the emphasis will be on increasing the vocabulary for all children – general and special education students. Further, the system supports the outcomes within the Common Core.

Educating Students with Dyslexia and Learning Difficulties (A) ESM740
Provider - University of Tasmania
This unit focuses on the nature of dyslexia and the characteristics of students with this and other specific learning difficulties. Models and theories to explain normal development in language literacy and numeracy skills and how learners may differ will be analysed. Educational programming implications, such as learning environment organisation, the role of ICT/AAC in the screening and teaching of pupils with specific learning difficulties, and principles of staff development for an inclusive curriculum will be explored.
The unit will culminate in the construction and evaluation of a structured, sequential, multisensory teaching program to meet specific needs in learning literacy and numeracy within the context of the Australian Curriculum (ACARA). This course contributes to the Grad Cert in Inclusive Practices.
