STUDY SKILLS - Online

Dr. Anthony Henley presents Study Skills and Learning Strategies: evidence-based methods to help students improve executive functioning, test-taking skills, and comprehension. Instruction is based primarily on the SKORE method developed by Claire Nissenbaum, a Fellow of the Orton-Gillingham Academy and Founder of ASDEC. Participants will also learn to provide students with an overview of phonics and general study skills. In addition, they will learn how to boost test-taking skills that emphasize understanding directions and identifying key words. Study Skills is one of four required courses for Academic Therapy (AT) Certification. Participants may begin their AT training with this course.

Participants will learn specific methods to help students in three critical areas: Executive Function, Study Strategies and Grammar/Writing:

    •    Time Management,
    •    Binder/Materials Organization,
    •    Metacognition, and
    •    Teacher Relations.

    •    Oral note-taking techniques, and
    •    Systematic study from student texts.

    •    Base words and inflected endings,
    •    Multiple word meanings,
    •    Synonyms and antonyms,
    •    Etymology, roots and affixes ,
    •    Non-literal Language, such as idioms and metaphors
