Join Denyse Ritchie, Principal at THRASS at the 2016 Education Show as she compares a phono-graphic approach (speech to print) and a grapho-phonic approach (print to speech) to show how the phonics teaching paradigm must shift in order to work with, not against, Dyslexia learning strengths.

Teaching letter sounds, initial sounds or SATPIN is the starting point for literacy teaching used by thousands of schools in Australia and is the point at which many learners with Dyslexia are left behind. The unsustainable and contradictory nature of these teaching programs is the reason many learners become confused, struggle and ultimately fail in reading and writing.

The Education Show will showcase the latest cutting edge learning and teaching resources along with programs, support services and technology to educators from across Australia. Visitors can also attend the Free Education Program, as well as the Free Spotlight Stage where exhibitors will provide in depth information about their service, program or resource.

Register for this free seminar session taking place at The Education Showat the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre on Friday 30 – Saturday 31 August, visit the website for more info:
