Angie will be presenting research-based lesson ideas and tools and share web-based learning programs that support the development of Hebrew decoding for students. These ideas are based on her own practice working with students with language-based learning disabilities, where she has adopted multi-sensory components from Orton-Gilingham based reading programs including Preventing Academic Failure and Wilson Fundations to create a powerful and effective Kriah program.
