Course Information


This explicit and systematic phonics program introduces students to the foundational reading skills necessary for proficient reading.  

UFLI Foundations is an explicit and systematic phonics program that introduces students to the foundational reading skills necessary for proficient reading. It follows a carefully developed scope and sequence designed to ensure that students systematically acquire each skill needed and learn to apply each skill with automaticity and confidence.


Developed by Dr. Holly Lane and Dr. Valentina Contesse of the University of Florida Literacy Institute and facilitated by Speld Qld, this one-day workshop will include: 

  • A review of essential background knowledge about the science of reading  
  • An overview of the UFLI Foundations program 
  • An in-depth exploration of each lesson step  
  • Recommendations for progress monitoring and differentiation


Workshop attendees can purchase the UFLI Foundations manual at the discounted price of $99.00 (usually $121.00) on the day. (Visa/Mastercard payments only)
