Event Details

Sounds~Write is an evidence-based phonics program utilising an exciting and highly successful approach to the teaching of reading and spelling.  This four day intensive course offers an instructional method that is structured, cumulative, sequential and explicit; all of which are strongly recommended for teaching children to read and spell. Progressing through Initial Code to Extended Code, the training includes clearly structured, easy to follow lesson plans, a complete program, manual and printable resources. Sounds-Write is developmentally appropriate for beginning readers in Foundation, Year 1 and Year 2, and also offers fast and highly effective intervention for children at all year levels who have fallen behind with their reading and spelling from Year 3 onwards.


Presenter: Lisa Watts

Before joining DSF Lisa worked for the Western Australia Department of Education and managed a team of Psychologists, Teachers and Education Assistants who supported and planned for students with complex educational needs. This included mentoring teachers and providing consultations for whole school and classroom planning. Lisa has been utilising synthetic phonic programs remedially for over seven years, and uses Sounds~Write with the students she tutors. She has seen the positive impact of the programme on struggling students.
