This two-day workshop (September 1 and 2) will provide participants with an overview of the Wilson Reading System and is intended for participants with no previous training on the Wilson Reading System. Participants will learn about appropriate student identification and placement, program implementation, and progress monitoring using the Wilson Reading System. Principles of language structure and how to teach language with direct, multisensory methods are demonstrated, shown in videos, and practiced during the workshop. Participants explore the standard 10-part Wilson Lesson Plan and practice planning and delivering a lesson and receiving feedback. Upon completion of this two-day workshop, participants will be able to:
- Define dyslexia, and describe common characteristics.
- Explain the process of identifying appropriate students and placing them in the Wilson Reading System.
- Demonstrate a solid understanding of WRS principles of instruction: explicit, sequential, cumulative, and diagnostic multisensory instruction.
