Multi-Sensory Approach to Support Literacy Difficulties

The Multi-Sensory Literacy (MSL) programme is a cumulative programme based on the well-founded Orton-Gillinham approach which also supports the systematic, synthetic teaching of phonics.  The programme is designed for pupils with persistent and severe literacy difficulties and taught on a 1:1 basis in two 30-minutes session per week. The programme is cumulative and only includes information being taught or that has been taught - it does not presume prior learning.    


Our Training to deliver the Multi-Sensory Literacy Course

We provide training for SENCOs and higher level support assistants (HLTAs) on how to deliver our cumulative multi-sensory intervention.  The training comprises 5 half days and includes a range of interactive activities, video clips and lots of opportunities for discussion.  Delegates will be provided with the necessary resources to deliver the programme.
