This four-day virtual workshop (9:00am-12:30pm daily) focuses on multisensory techniques for teaching reading, spelling, and handwriting in the primary grades using the PAF Reading Program. PAF incorporates the theory and practices of Orton-Gillingham instruction into an early reading program intended to be used with groups of children at-risk for reading difficulties. PAF can also be used remedially for struggling readers, for tutoring, or as an effective beginning reading program for all children.

Topics will include instructional practices supported by the latest research on developing accurate decoding and fluent reading, comprehension, lesson planning, and curriculum-based assessments.
