Rx Workshops

Reading, Writing, and Math Intervention

Do you know students who do not have a diagnosis or a psycho-educational assessment, but do require some explicit support in reading, writing or math?

Our Rx Workshops are designed to train educators to provide intervention in an individual or small group setting to students whose basic reading, writing or math skills are below expected standards.

Each workshop targets specific areas using NILD’s methods of mediation, Socratic questioning and dialogue to strengthen students’ cognitive functions and thinking skills.

Rx for Reading®

This training workshop takes the five essential components of reading – phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary and reading comprehension, which we call “strands of language” and weaves them into a language braid that is comprehensive, constructive, and creative.

This workshop systematically teaches participants the methodology to develop these components. The participant will learn to identify and assess student needs in basic reading and then utilize the group model Rx for Reading to effectively and efficiently develop decoding and encoding skills in their students.

Rx 4 Math®

This training workshop will equip educators to build and strengthen number sense, math fluency, math vocabulary, and problem-solving strategies for students in Grade K-3. Students will be challenged to apply their growing understanding of number sense to novel problem-solving activities that challenge thinking and reasoning.

Hands-on, research-based, number sense activities will be utilized as the core content in this dynamic intervention while mediation, Socratic questioning, and the strengthening of cognitive functions will serve as the core methodology.

Rx 4 Math II

This training workshop is designed to train teachers, educational therapists and homeschool parents to provide mathematical intervention for students in Grades 6-8. Rx 4 Math II© student sessions are either one-on-one or in small group settings for 45 minutes, twice a week.

This workshop will enable the educator to facilitate deeper mathematical thinking for students by understanding how to strengthen students’ conceptual understanding, computational fluency, and mathematical reasoning skills by developing self-regulation and cognitive functions through a safe mathematical community where productive disposition, self-efficacy, a sense of belonging and mathematical exploration is encouraged.

Rx for Writing

This training workshop is designed to train teachers to provide written language intervention in a group setting. Rx for Writing is specifically intended for students in grades 4-12 whose basic written expression skills are below expected standards.

Rx for Writing builds and strengthens grammar and writing mechanics, semantics, syntax, and composition writing skills with an emphasis on the writing process. Language and higher-level thinking skills are developed and supported in this interactive, small-group intervention that covers research-based writing content while mediation, Socratic questioning, and the strengthening of cognitive functions will serve as the core methodology.
