The Slingerland® Approach Multisensory Structured Language Comprehensive Classes are based on an adaptation by Beth H. Slingerland of the multisensory approach of Dr. Samuel T. Orton and Anna Gillingham. The techniques she developed are based on sound neurological principles of learning and give children the necessary tools to be successful readers, writers and spellers.
The Comprehensive Classes are offered at three levels - introductory, second level and third level continuum. The classes are accredited through the International Multisensory Structured Language Education Council (IMSLEC). Each class includes a practicum with students, demonstrations and observations. This intensive class of study includes instructional techniques in handwriting, written language, decoding, and reading comprehensive.
Partial Scholarships may be available through your local IDA Branch.
In order to protect class participants and students alike, acceptance to a comprehensive class requires satisfactory completion of a criminal background and sex offender registry check. Forms for the background check will be provided in your registration confirmation email.
