LANGUAGE 1: SOUNDS IN SYLLABLES
Required for Therapy Level Certification
ASDEC faculty present Sounds in Syllables (SIS), a powerful Orton-Gillingham based method to teach reading (decoding, fluency, and comprehension), spelling, writing, and the foundation of syntax and grammar. SIS founder, Sandra Dillon incorporates methods she learned directly from Patricia and Charles Lindamood, Beth Slingerland, and Aylett Royal Cox, author of Alphabetic Phonics. These methods integrate research-based evidence from neurology, cognitive sciences, psychology, speech-language pathology, and linguistics to produce the most durable remediation for students with even the most severe learning disabilities.
Language 1 students learn the precise articulation of the sounds of English and sound-symbol relationships. They learn to "cement" learning by using multisensory methods that trigger positive changes in the way students process learning. Research on these strategies demonstrates that multisensory approaches delivered through the repetitive, simultaneous, methods of SIS actually strengthen weak neural pathways and build new ones. This is why SIS students retain the reading and language skills they learn in order to achieve academic success long after they have completed their work with ASDEC therapists.
After completing the course, participants may work in ASDEC's Summer Program where they will earn a full 2-month credit toward their certification requirements. Interns who complete the summer program will receive priority referrals from ASDEC.
