“I think the biggest thing I have learned is that there are different components/categories of dysgraphia. The assignments required me to analyze and reanalyze tasks.”  ~L.J. 

“After taking a step back to analyze dysgraphia, I didn’t realize there were so many differences between them!”  ~K.R.

“I met and evaluated a kiddo today that I just know is dysgraphic. It was so clear, and I felt so good knowing, instead of wondering!”  ~K.A.

Yes! I want to learn more treatment skills!

Many students need the support of Orton-Gillingham programming. However, sometimes even those programs need to be adapted for some students. If you have a student that needs additional accommodations and modifications, this course is for you.

Some students are avid readers?  Why can’t they write?  Why do they refuse to write? If you want solutions that you can use for these students, this course is for you.

Do you want to pull your hair out some days with that student that simply cannot spell? There is a biological reason.  Join us to find out more.

Do you need to improve your classroom scores for your school district’s overall rating? This course can help your English Language Arts programming without adding extra work to your day. With a few small adjustments to how you are presenting spelling and vocabulary, you will increase the overall retention of spelling for your students.

This course is designed for regular education and learning support classrooms.  Some autistic classroom teachers will be able to take some of the ideas and utilize them with higher level students.

This course is not designed to be a behavioral management system.
