    The Atlantic Seaboard Dyslexia Education Center (ASDEC) is pleased to present   K-Reading KickStart Program, developed by Mona Iyer, AMS, CALT, CDT.  Ms. Iyer is an early childhood reading specialist with over 25 years teaching highly successful strategies for reading, writing, handwriting, and spelling.

    K-Reading KickStart integrates foundational Orton-Gillingham instructional methods with highly effective Montessori strategies for multi-sensory learning.  The objective of this program is to provide a strong foundation in reading, writing and comprehension to young learners and provide a path for continued enhancement of reading skills by identifying different learning paths for groups with different learning abilities.  Using evidence-based screeners, teachers will learn how to group students according to their learning needs.

    Multisensory Math 1 Online: 

    Instructor: Marilyn Zecher

    Based on the Orton-Gillingham philosophy of teaching, Marilyn Zecher's Multisensory Mathematics I applies the research-based Concrete-Representation-Abstract (CRA) approach to teaching mathematics as advocated by the National Math Panel and the NCTM. Participants learn to apply this methodology in guiding students from foundation skills and numeracy to place value, operations, fractions and decimals. Participants learn to use manipulatives effectively to reinforce concepts, aid memory and enhance performance for all students. Strategies for helping students learn and retrieve math facts are stressed as well as structured procedures for computational accuracy. This approach is especially effective with students who learn differently, inclusion classes and ESL learners. The approach is effective for initial instruction as well as remedial work at all levels and is compatible with all curricula and programs.

    Program Dates:

    September 23 - December 1, 2019
    With two 90 minute online sessions  with instructors - evening and weekend options available. Scheduling of online sessions will occur after the start of the class.

    ONSITE Math 2 in Rockville

    Marilyn Zecher presents the follow-up course to Multisensory Math 1. Based on the Orton-Gillingham philosophy of teaching, Multisensory Mathematics II applies the research-based Concrete-Representation-Abstract (CRA) approach to teaching mathematics as advocated by the National Math Panel and the National Council of Teachers of Math (NCTM). Participants learn to apply this methodology in guiding students from foundation skills such as multiplication, division and fractions to operations in upper levels of math including Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, Algebra II and Geometry. This approach is especially effective with students who learn differently, inclusion classes and ELL learners. The approach is effective for initial instruction as well as remedial work at all levels and is compatible with all curricula and programs.


    Onsite Dates: September 28, October 12, 19, 26 and November 2

    Successul completion of Multisensory Math 1 is required prior to enrolling in Math 2.

    Neuro-Psychology of Learning Differences and Disorders

    This hybrid onsite and online  course offers full, up-to-the-minute research findings in the brain functions underlying learning, with emphasis on language-learning. Students will learn about the history of psychology, brain structure, brain development, and neurological anomalies that produce learning differences.  

    The course will discuss how to use different intervention strategies based on a better understanding of how neurological conditions affect learning. Specifically, students will learn how to analyze behaviors and create more effective learning environments both in a one-to-one teaching environment as well as in the classroom.

    Students will also learn how to read and analyze neuro-psychological testing to design the most effective learning interventions. This class is ideal for all teachers, academic therapists, tutors and parents who wish to better understand the neurological strengths and weaknesses of their learners.

    Date: September 30-December 13, 2019

    Online Sessions: 10/5 11/2 and 12/7 from 7:30-9:00 p.m.
