Reaching All Readers
Transforming Reading Outcomes
in Your Classroom
Building on what science has taught us about the reading brain and decades of classroom experience, teachers walk you through how an explicit, structured and multi-sensory approach to reading instruction can transform even your most reluctant readers.
Designed to Support
Teachers at All Levels
From those new to the classroom to veterans looking to sharpen their skills, expert teachers provide an overview of the five areas of reading, plus written expression, covering topics such as phonemic awareness, handwriting, vocabulary, the structure of the English language and more.

What Educators Have to Say
“I thought a little bit of phonics a day was enough but that wasn’t fair to my students. What I learned from the course is that research shows that explicit, systematic, multisensory phonics really works and it’s helpful and it just doesn’t impact reading! It impacts writing. It impacts spelling. It impacts reading comprehension.”
Elementary School Teacher
“The training was definitely helpful. I had a lot of ‘ah ha’ moments like learning about the neuroprocesses that are involved for a student to learn how to read, and learning about how the english language has evolved over centuries and how this explains why so many english words are hard to pronounce unless you teach the rules.“
Elementary School Teacher
“I’ve been through trainings where you go through three or four days of training before you actually did anything to apply it, but the lessons show us a rule, show the way to execute the rule or routine and then it can be immediately applied.”
“You think you know the sounds of all the letters and after this training, I had to relearn them all. I sat at home with flashcards after this class practicing all the sounds of the letter ‘a’ and then ‘ai.’ I loved learning all the little tricks you can teach children to help them remember the sounds and the letters and the way they are formed so that they can learn to read.”
