Structures® Level I - Livestream

Prerequisite: None

Appropriate Audience:

• 4th & 5th grade: General Education (Tier 1 Small-Group Intervention – Use phonics/syllabication components; Whole Class – Use morphology components)

• 6th through 12th grade*: Special Education, intervention, resource (Tiers 2 & 3: Small group or one-on-one instruction) *Appropriate for students with dyslexia and/or learning differences whose reading skills are at or above a Grade 1 level.


Instead of taking the Structures® course, which is a mirror of the Phonics First® course, with the addition of morphology, we strongly recommend taking the Level II course instead. Level II includes Structures® materials, details on teaching Structures®, morphology instruction, and much more. LEARN ABOUT the LEVEL II COURSE here.     


This comprehensive and highly intensive course qualifies teachers to bring Orton-Gillingham multisensory instruction to their classrooms. Structures® transforms struggling, dyslexic, and learning-differenced readers into skilled learners through our effective, interactive, multisensory approach to reading and spelling.

A Brainspring Instructor teaches this course live in real time via Zoom (access and use details are provided upon registration). Participants log in on each course date and time to participate. Courses allow for interaction with the Instructor and other course participants in order to retain the hands-on learning approach. Course sessions also include small-group discussions, practice sessions, and question and answer opportunities.

NEW FEATURE: Course participants receive one-year, online access to the Structures® Course Review. This on-demand access allows teachers to review content, skills and strategies for all lesson components.
