Edmark Reading Programme for children in SET and SEN

This course will provide an introduction to the Edmark Reading Programme, which is particularly effective in supporting children with Autism, children with working memory difficulties and children who continue to struggle with reading after prolonged instruction with phonics and blending.

The course will provide an overview of the materials in Edmark levels 1 and 2 and will provide guidance on selecting students who might be suited to Edmark. It will introduce the rationale and teaching strategies of Edmark, explain the use of the Edmark Mastery Test as an assessment tool and provide insight from teachers with extensive experience working with Edmark. The course will also describe approaches to implementing Edmark in SET and SEN settings and will provide opportunities for participants to review the resources included in the Edmark programme boxes.
