Recent and current research indicates the value of a “preventive” approach to deal with potential learning problems in the future. NILD Canada has taken the challenge to provide help for young students (K-2nd grade). NILD Canada is offering training in Search and Teach©, an early identification and intervention program developed to meet the educational needs of young learners before they experience the frustration of learning failure.
SEARCH, a 20-minute individual test designed to identify 5 and 6-year-olds vulnerable to learning difficulty, provides profiles of individual strengths and weaknesses in the foundational skills necessary for reading success. TEACH, a program of 55 learning tasks, was carefully developed and tested during a four-year investigation of pre-reading skills to address the needs revealed by SEARCH. It is an individualized program, but does allow for some small group work of review activities with children of similar needs.
The Search & Teach two day workshop will provide you with the background information on the historical, theoretical, & research foundations of the program. You will learn how to administer, score, and interpret the SEARCH assessment scan, and be introduced to the TEACH intervention program. Upon completion of this workshop, participants will be equipped to fully implement both SEARCH and TEACH components.
