Course Description

Spelling Instruction: Assessment and Remedial Approach is not only a course on the causes and remedial solutions to spelling problems, but it also includes the Good Sensory Spelling Assessment - a downloadable evaluation that provides a menu of instructional approaches and materials that can help tutors, learning specialists and educational therapists meet the individual needs of struggling spellers. What's more, a downloadable companion journal also offers additional resources and links. I created this course especially for my audience, as this was the most requested topic.

This comprehensive course Includes:

  • Two instructional videos
    • Evaluating the Cause
    • Defining the Solution
  • Two downloadable documents
    • Good Sensory Learning Spelling Assessment
      • Offers a student assessment
      • Presents remedial suggestions
    • Companion Journal to Spelling Instruction
      • Offers a term dictionary
      • Reviews the Orton-Gillingham approach
      • Presents a table of Orton-Gillingham based programs
      • Provides a listing of helpful assistive technology suggestions

This is an evergreen course, so I will continue to make changes and additions. What’s more, you will always have lifetime access to the content.

Cheers, Erica

This was a fantastic course for me...working with typical and identified LD learners facing spelling, writing and reading challenges, I found that the most difficult aspect to navigate easily was spelling. The kiddos hated practicing their spelling, so many of them couldn't find a way to make the words "stick". This course helps me identify the likely cause of the spelling problem for each individual student, and HOW BEST TO ADDRESS IT. While it's obvious she knows what she's doing, Erica presents the material in a very accessible way, and the Spelling Assessment, supporting documents and list of resources is incredible. Thank you, Erica! You've brought FUN to spelling for the kids who hated spelling. Success.

I found myself drowning in unrecognisable spelling problems as our school year began (In South Africa our school year starts in January). It appeared that half of my special needs class were on the dyslexic spectrum ...all manifesting weird and wonderful ways of spelling...what I thought...the most obvious words. I wanted to laugh and cry...and eventually headed over to Mr Google who directed me to this amazing course. Since studying this course I have been able to identify the type of dyslexia each child has, as well as learn methods of dealing with each type of dyslexia. I feel so empowered and grateful that I can now tune into how their little minds work...and can actually see progress in their spelling and reading. Thank you Erica for sharing your knowledge and insights #forevergrateful
