Event Details

Wilson Reading System Introductory Training

*This is a three (3) day event - Monday, August 26th, Tuesday, August 27th,  & Wednesday, August 28th, 2019


Audience: District/Agency Personnel, Literacy Specialists/Coordinators and representatives of other state/community agencies and higher education


Presenter:  Audrey Lacher, Wilson Credentialed Trainer



This course provides participants with an overview of the Wilson Reading System® (WRS) 4th Edition curriculum and serves as the prerequisite for WRS Level I Certification. Over three consecutive days (16.5 hours), this course examines how WRS addresses the teaching of phonemic awareness, word identification, vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension through an integrated study of phonology, morphology, and orthography with students in grade two and above with persistent phonological coding deficits.

Participants learn about reading research, dyslexia, appropriate student identification and placement, program implementation, progress monitoring, scheduling, and creating a successful learning environment. Principles of language structure and how to teach language with direct, multisensory methods are demonstrated and practiced during the course. Participants explore the standard 10-part Wilson Lesson Plan and practice planning and delivering a lesson while receiving modeling and feedback from a Wilson® Credentialed Trainer during the course.


*Materials will be on-site for the participants to use for the duration of the training.  If a district is interested in purchasing materials, please talk with the Wilson trainer at the conclusion of the training.


Please note:  There is no cost for this event for public school personnel (LEAs).  All non-public school personnel may attend this training for a fee if space allows. Please contact Lauren Johns for more information.
