Rx for Discovery Reading Workshop

The Rx for Discovery Reading training takes the five essential components of reading – phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary and reading comprehension – and systematically teaches NILD educational therapists and classroom educators how to use the NILD materials and methodology to develop these components.

The training is designed to model how to weave these components, which we call “strands of language” into a language braid that is comprehensive, constructive, and creative.

Once the Rx for Discovery Reading training is completed NILD educational therapists and classroom educators will be able to work with students in a one-on-one situation or in small groups and effectively and efficiently develop decoding and encoding skills in their students.
