2020 SUMMER CONTINUUM LEVEL COMPREHENSIVE CLASS at Valley Christian School

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).

This registration site is for the four week intensive summer session version. 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.

The class at Valley Christian School will start on Thursday, July 2 but there will be no class on Friday, July 3 (observing the 4th of July).  Class reconvenes on Tuesday, July 7 and continues through July 31.  The regular schedule will be Monday-Friday from 8 am to 4:30 pm - unless notified otherwise by the class instructor.  If you have questions about the class, please contact the instructor directly via email at: shirley@vcs.net. 

These classes are 133 classroom hours each and are approved for six graduate level extension credits through the University of San Diego.
