Approximately one student in every 10 in our primary schools experiences some form of learning challenge within their educational setting, with three to five per cent having a specific learning disorder such as dyslexia.
These students require early identification and appropriate intervention using a systematic, explicit and cumulative approach to the instruction of reading and spelling, with high intensity and frequency. The Little Learners Love Literacy (LLLL) phonics program provides a comprehensive scope and sequence for the teaching of literacy in the early years. It can be equally effective in supporting students experiencing learning difficulties, with its systematic and carefully sequenced methodology.
This workshop will provide participants with theoretical and practical information on implementing the LLLL program with students experiencing learning difficulties.
