  • the processing styles inherent in dyslexia and dysgraphia
  • how to identify at-risk students
  • components relevant to diagnosing dyslexia
  • when to compensate and when to remediate
  • the importance of phonological awareness skills and how to develop them at early and advanced levels
  • approaches to develop sound/symbol correspondence for reading and spelling
  • why students with dyslexia need instruction in phonics
  • how to develop written language skills using remedial and bypass strategies
  • how to improve written language expresssion through metacognitive awareness and explicit practice of specific processing skills

  • decoding and encoding through structured, systematic, and multisensory instruction and practice
  • spelling based on Levine's six acquired insights and including activities designed to enhance learning at each insight
