On-line Multisensory Reading Level 2 Workshop

Scroll down for more information.




The On-line Multisensory Reading Level 2 Workshop provides participants with systematic, step-by-step instructions for effectively implementing the Cracking the ABC Code Multisensory Reading Level 2 programs.

These programs are designed for students who know the sounds of the alphabet but not (or very few of) the common digraphs.  Level 2A is for students with a reading age of under 6 years 2 months and Level 2B is for students with a reading age between 6 years 2 months and 6 years 6 months.

It consists of 6 Units:
* Introduction
* Using the Learn to Read books
* Using the Sound Hearing program
* Introducing the first lesson
* Teaching subsequent lessons
* Modifying the program to meet the needs of individual learners.

    A fantastic course. The level 2 online workshop allows you to revisit the information and view as well as hear how the program should be implemented. A wonderful way of learning and consolidating the information. Dr Fawcett’s step by step, direct and clear delivery through well structured videos enables you to access the information and answer the quiz questions, reinforcing your knowledge. I feel prepared and confident to implement what I have learned with my students. Fabulous!

  2. Michelle

    This was an easy to follow on line course. I really liked that it was broken down into smaller videos which made it easy to squeeze in when i had a spare half an hour or so!

  3. Kerri-Laurae Corey

    I thoroughly enjoyed completing this online course. It reinforced many vital and basic practices and gave me renewed confidence and enthusiasm. It provides a clear process which can be modified to suit individuals-outstanding!

  4. Liz G

    I found the course to be very detailed and informative. It was full of very useful information and step by step guides on how to support learners with literacy difficulties. The supporting resources are fantastic and I plan to use them in my future teaching. Thanks Lillian!

  5. Jocelyn Saggers

    The online course is easy to use, quick and informative. The videos are wonderful visuals and enhance the information Lillian speaks about in the units. The units make a great additional training source and revision after completing the face to face teacher training course.

  6. Trish Bruhn

    A very thorough and informative course. It was great to be able to stop and listen again to the information, if needed. Some great examples and explanations provided. The workshop was easy to use and very informative. I would love to have a transcript of all that is said, however!

  7. Debbie Bassingthwaighte

    This on-line Reading Level 2 Workshop was the perfect supplement to the full-day face-to-face Multisensory Literacy Training. It provided structured and highly practical tips on how to effectively implement the Cracking the ABC Code program with younger students who know very few of the common digraphs. I found the content well organised and easy to access, and the quizzes kept me focused and thinking critically about what I was learning. I’m now looking forward with much anticipation to using level 2A with my first student, and feel well-prepared since completing this course.

  8. Caterina Napoli

    I would like to complement Dr Fawcett on putting together an informative and easy to follow set of online modules.
    Having used the program personally with my son for the past 18 months I found it invaluable to gain further insight into the research which went into formulating this learning tool. I am excited to continue “Cracking the ABC Code” with my son and many other students.

    Thanks, Lillian for producing such a user friendly on line course. The six units were presented clearly with some video clips of the sections in action. This really made the course ‘real’.
    Each unit covered the key areas and was easy to listen to again for clarification. A truly valuable resource.

  10. Anita Pringle

    This course goes into great depth and clarified many questions I had about implementing the Level 2 program. The ability to watch the different activities demonstrated has given me greater confidence when working with children and discussing the program with parents. After taking copious notes throughout, I now have a resource that I can refer to, to refresh my memory if needs be! Thankyou Lillian for creating such an excellent resource.

  11. Linda Reedman

    I found this online course very informative and an excellent resource to refer back to. My teaching of the Crackingtheabccode program has been in Level 3 and 4 and I found this course gave me a greater understanding of how the different levels of the program build on each other.

  12. Marie Johnson

    A very thorough and informative course. The first unit was loaded with necessary information but delivered a little quickly. Some great examples and explanations provided within each unit of work.

  13. Linda McGovern

    The on-line Level 2 workshop created by Lillian is an excellent resource that is easy to navigate and packed with information. The six units cover every aspect of the programme in detail. The quizzes at the end of each unit ensure that you really understand the knowledge, skills and understandings that are so important to successfully implementing this programme. It was helpful to be able to watch some parts over again to fully understand the concepts being discussed. I found the explanation of the research behind the programme extremely useful. I appreciated how Lillian promptly answered my emails when I encountered something that needed clarifying. I feel I can confidently teach Level 2 to my students after completing this excellent on-line workshop.

  14. Andrea Deithe

    After doing the CrackingtheABCcode workshop I completed the online-reading level 2 workshop. The online workshop was user friendly and very informative. I am new to the program and have just started some students on level 2 and it has been useful to be able to go back on any points I was unsure of. Watching the videos of Lillian teaching points was really key for me as it made it so clear. I would recommend the workshop and would love to complete more myself.
