SpLD Specialist Teacher Extension Course - Developing Phonemic Awareness in Learners
Developing Phonemic Awareness in Learners
This course is the second in a series of courses relating to the Dyslexia Action Literacy Programme (DALP). No prior knowledge of the programme is needed, though participants are expected to have a working knowledge of a structured, multi-sensory literacy programme or hold a qualification in specialist teaching or speech therapy.
This course demonstrates a strategic method of introducing learners with literacy-difficulties to the mapping of sounds to letters and letters to sounds. Each learning point gives the practitioner key facts to ensure the smooth facilitation of learning and a range of resources to support the delivery of the new phoneme/grapheme. The standard learning points develop cumulatively in a highly structured way. A method of delivering the extended learning points in a more individualised way is also demonstrated.
The course aims to give practitioners the confidence to create their own phonemic learning points using the extensive range of examples of strategies and resources provided within the unit’s substantial materials.
Please note: this course does not train teachers as dyslexia/SpLD specialists or involve a teaching practicum. This training is covered in the Dyslexia Action Professional Certificate in Structured Teaching Intervention (at Masters Level 7) and in the Dyslexia Action Certificate in Strategic Teaching Support for Dyslexia and Literacy at Level 5.
