The five-session course, taught by Phyllis Bertin, M.S., co-author of Preventing Academic Failure (PAF), focuses on multisensory techniques for teaching reading. Participants will be trained in this Orton-Gillingham-based program for teaching reading, writing and spelling in the primary grades. Utilizing PAF from kindergarten or first grade can prevent reading failure for children with disabilities. PAF can also be used remedially for struggling readers or as an effective beginning reading program for all children. Topics will include instructional practices supported by the latest research on developing accurate and fluent reading and comprehension. For teachers of grades K-6
