Level II - Livestream


  • Either Phonics First® Level I OR Structures® Level I
  • 3+ months teaching Phonics First® or Structures® to students

Appropriate Audience:

•  Kindergarten through 12th grade general education, special education, intervention, and resource teachers who have taken either Phonics First® Level I or Structures® Level I

This rigorous Orton-Gillingham course focuses on increasing teaching expertise for remediating reading development of K-12 students with dyslexia and learning differences in small-group and one-on-one settings. Teachers review and deepen their ability to teach the Level I course content of both Phonics First® and Structures® to meet the unique needs of each learner. Further, the Level II course expands teaching expertise beyond phonological awareness and phonics. Teachers learn instructional strategies to teach reading fluency, morphology, vocabulary, comprehension, grammar, and syntax. During the Level II course, teachers gain knowledge to instruct students with dyslexia and learning differences in multiple areas of reading and writing by applying their enhanced knowledge of structured, sequential, multisensory teaching. This allows them to adapt a wide range of teacher-selected materials to their students’ reading and writing needs.

Level II is a required class for those pursuing Brainspring’s nationally recognized certification.
