Multisensory Strategies for Spelling and Decoding, In-Person – Summer Institute 2022


  • Delivery mode: In-person. All guidelines around Covid-19 protocols will be followed and communicated to participants.
  • Attendance: Live, on the date and time listed in the course information section.


For all students, but especially those with language-based learning disabilities, repetition is key when learning new concepts. In this seminar, participants will learn how to create and use various manipulatives and multimodal activities to review fundamental reading and spelling skills in an interactive way. Games and exercises that review decoding patterns and spelling rules will be a primary focus, but the strategies, websites, and techniques presented are applicable to any content area or word work. Tips and tricks for creating engaging paper-based and virtual ideas will be shared.

Upon completion, participants will be able to:

  • Design, create and assemble numerous multimodal manipulatives
  • Adapt word lists/content into both paper- based and virtual game formats
  • Generate meaningful activities that integrate curriculum and study skills
  • Adapt and micro-unit various reading and spelling strategies to meet student needs
  • Diversify lesson plans by incorporating interactive tasks and supplemental activities


This course is appropriate for educators at the elementary level.


Materials will be provided on-site.
