Description: If dyslexics think in 3D, then let’s teach them in 3D. Add a new level to any OG/MSL approach by teaching in three dimensions. Phonemic objects aren’t just for teaching initial consonants anymore. Learn how to teach blending, segmenting, and even spelling and reading rules in 3D, the way dyslexics think. This workshop also shows other multisensory ways to teach the brain. Participants receive phonemic objects, a 3D early intervention packet, and door prizes.
