Supporting Dyslexics

Training is being offered for the Barton Reading and Spelling System.  Barton is an Orton-Gillingham based Multisensory, Explicit and Systematic Phonics Program that addresses research supported foundational skills identified for reading success.

  • Develop phonemic awareness 
  • Build phonetic skills
  • Decoding fluency using real word and nonsense word skills
  • Increase sight word recognition
  • Progress monitoring format

Resulting in more proficient REaders

USING THE BARTON READING AND SPELLING PROGRAM CAN ASSIST EDUCATORS TO IDENTIFY STUDENTS’ SPECIFIC PHONEMIC/READING WEAKNESSES AND PROVIDE A PROVEN INTERVENTION. IT ALSO FITS IN TIER 3 OF THE RTI MODEL. 

Training

AT READING RESOURCES, WE BELIEVE THAT MOST STUDENTS STRUGGLING WITH READING, WRITING AND SPELLING LEARN BEST FROM THE SCIENTIFICALLY BASED ORTON-GILLINGHAM METHODOLOGY. OUR GOAL IS TO MAKE THAT TRAINING AVAILABLE TO PARENTS, EDUCATORS AND ADMINISTRATORS, SO THEY CAN PROVIDE THIS TYPE OF REMEDIATION INSTRUCTION TO THEIR STUDENTS. 

Barton Levels 1 - 4

The Barton Intro course covers Levels 1-4. Upon completion of our course, your staff will be able to address phonemic awareness weaknesses in their students and have a working knowledge of the first four levels of the Barton Reading and Spelling System that covers the various sounds of letters, units, diagraphs and spelling rules that cover single and multi- syllable word rules, schwa and syllable division rules. Your staff will have a strong understanding of the warning signs of phonemic weaknesses and will be able to identify them in their classroom learners. Educators will have an all necessary materials for their classroom that will allow them to utilize their training with ease. The class will also focus on the kinds of accommodations needed by struggling readers/spellers and how to incorporate them into a 504 plan or an IEP.
