What is Phonics First® ?
Once mastered, Brainspring’s flexible and dynamic Phonics First® approach is both a diagnostic and remedial tool that significantly benefits not only the dyslexic student, but also students with a wide variety of learning needs.
Course participants learn about current reading and dyslexia research, rationale for multisensory instruction, the stages of reading development and the Phonics First® instructional elements necessary for delivering quality, multisensory, code- emphasis reading lessons for critical decoding and encoding skill development. Learning is structured, sequential, systematic, cumulative and success-oriented. Emphasis is on teaching reading to beginning, struggling, at-risk, dyslexic, ELL and learning disabled readers grades K-5.
