This course is a detailed tour of the interwoven, micro-structure of English, from speech to print. Participants will learn how to apply linguistic analysis in five language domains:
1. phonetics & phonology
5. semantics & discourse
This course is designed as an introduction to the knowledge and skills needed to apply an Orton-Gillingham (a.k.a. structured language) approach to intervention with students who have language processing weaknesses. Participants will learn a variety of structured language principles and instructional routines and will have opportunities to practice their application.
This course is a 13-week clinical practicum course for professionals who need experience working with students in a clinical setting. You will be trained working with three clients for a total of 88 hours of hands-on Structured Literacy teletherapy experience.
