Pre-recorded workshops included within yearly membership.
Learn to APPLY SoR without needing an on-site trainer!
The training videos allow Curriculum Leaders the opportunity to watch the training ahead of the date they wish to run the session in-house, and plan a time-table accordingly. They are ideal for pupil-free days. This is also the ideal way to upskill your team, or even as a way for the team to decide if they wish to switch to the Speech Sound Pics (SSP) Approach!
Order a membership if you wish to use this approach within your own organisation, or as a tutor. You may also just want to understand how your child is being taught at an SSP school and want to best support them.
Paid training includes information about the resources you need to order, depending on which elements of the approach you plan to use.

We recommend a full monthly Membership to access training, videos and bookshelf, plus more in-depth 'Step by Step' instructions and ongoing support
from Miss Emma.
This is the ideal workshop if you would like to understand the process before
you even start. This is essential if you plan on using the approach within a classroom or learning support setting. The more you know, the easier it will be
to meet the needs of all - especially if they have poor phonemic awareness, learning challenges, or speak English as a Second Language. You might wish
to complete this introductory training in order to decide if this is the way you
would like to teach your child or group.

Enhancing current decoding and encoding skills within your school
Training for those working with 6 - 12 year olds
These training workshops are ideal for schools wanting to improve decoding fluency and encoding (spelling skills) and to understand how to segment ANY word into graphemes so that students reach the stage of being 'orthographic mappers' as quickly as possible.
Learn to add in 'Duck Hands, Lines and Numbers', how to use the Speech Sound Monsters to develop an awareness of the IPA (phonetic symbols that represent each English Speech Sound) by incorporating the 25 minute Speedy Six Spelling activities and adding in 5 minutes of Speedy Paired and Group Decoding each day.
You can use these techniques to boost your current phonics or spelling program.
You do not need to ditch them! These 2 activities, and awareness of how to 'Code Map' all words, will ensure that you understand SoR as you will learn how to 'talk on paper' with the students.
All you will need to actually buy is a set of A5 spelling clouds, to build a Speech Sound Wall displaying ALL spelling choices for the English written code.
You can of course also equip students with spelling cloud keyrings and spelling cloud table top mats, so that they can see all spelling choices easily.
