The Multisensory Reading Instruction: PAF Reading Program emphasizes explicit, multisensory techniques for teaching reading, handwriting, and spelling in the primary grades. PAF incorporates the theories and practices of Orton-Gilllingham instruction into an early intervention program intended for children at risk for reading difficulties. The PAF Reading Program can also be used remedially for struggling readers or as an effective beginning reading program for all children in grades K – 5. Topics include instructional practices supported by the latest research on developing accurate and fluent reading comprehension, lesson planning, and curriculum-based assessments.

Multisensory Reading Instruction: PAF I focuses on the foundations of the PAF instructional sequence. Topics include the developmental stages of reading, the synergistic relationship between spelling and reading, and the importance of controlled text. Instructional techniques for teaching phonemic awareness, the alphabetic principle (letters represent sounds), blending, word recognition, and comprehension will be discussed.
