Training for Professionals in EDU-T and LAP
Advanced and specialised as the EDU-T methodology is, it will benefit professionals already working in the education sector. This involves teachers, support specialist or a tertiary trained specialist working in the area of learning and reading development. The training period is 13 hours (Friday > Sunday schedule) and CA CEU- credits are available for LEP, Speech and Language Pathologists. Please contact Learning Time – 831-484-0994 or [email protected] for schedules and location.
The EDU-T Success Story
EDU-T’s Learning System – LAP (Learning Ability Platform)
Level 1 :- Activities begin with the most basic level of reading instruction. The learner is introduced to the symbol > sound relationship. A limited number of letter symbols are introduced in the first exercises to provide for over-learning, thus developing automaticity and an efficient pathway for sending phonic connections.
Level 2 :- Activities assume automatic recognition of basic symbol > sound and cluster > sound. The learner develops skill in pronouncing/recognizing words, rhyming, and practice creating words from cluster prompts. The learner is introduced to long vowel sounds and increasingly complex word flash images for memory development. Fluency activities speed up processing of symbols and establish integrated message pathways.
Level 3 :- Tasks develop and integrate reading skills. The trainer co-reads with the learner exposing more complex word configurations and initiating comprehension skills. Visualization of information and exposure to interesting content establish the fun of reading – as information expands for enjoyment.
Level 4 :- Activities further develop comprehension skills and fluency. The Echo-Tap system exercises develop comprehension skills and provide the learner with more experience of hearing information directed into the language hemisphere. These tasks increase comprehension, visualization of information, and speed of understanding of heard and inner speak (voice) processing.
Level 5 :- Tasks are unique in the learning experience. The Tempo Trainer focuses specific information into the right or left hemisphere via auditory input. The speed of processing of information is recorded in milliseconds and recorded. In addition to auditory processing tasks also measure the speed of processing of visual information. Lags in processing may be identified through these tasks and the exercises used to stimulate processing.
