Study Skills and Learning Strategies (Winter)

Instructor:  Dr. Anthony Henley

Course Description: Evidence-based methods to help students improve executive functioning, test-taking skills, and comprehension. Instruction is based primarily on the SKORE method developed by Claire Nissenbaum, a Fellow of the Orton-Gillingham Academy and Founder of ASDEC. Participants will also learn to provide students with an overview of phonics and general study skills. In addition, they will learn how to boost test-taking skills that emphasize understanding directions and identifying key words. 

Study Skills is one of four required courses for Academic Therapy (AT) Certification. Participants may begin their AT training with this course.

Next Class: February 3 - May  12, 2018 with four onsite sessions in our Rockville office.

Multisensory Math 1 (Spring)

Instructor: Marilyn Zecher

Course Description: 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.

Next Class: April 7 - June 23, 2017. With two 90 minute online sessions with Marilyn Zecher.
