Morph Mastery: Using a morphological approach to support reading, spelling and language development for learners with specific learning difficulties

A talk by Louise Selby, an advisory teacher, who has devised the Morph Mastery programme. She will provide information for both parents and teachers on how to use the a morphological approach to spelling and reading.

In this session, Louise will briefly guide you through the theory and research base for using morphology, followed by the background to the development of Morph Mastery. You’ll be shown the curriculum based assessments, films of morphological teaching in action, and you’ll have a chance to practise the methods and play some of the games.

Louise worked as a specialist advisory teacher in Hertfordshire Local Authority for 11 years, and before this, as a class teacher and SENCO in the primary sector and also as a teacher of learners with English as an Additional Language. She now works freelance in advising, training and supporting schools in meeting the needs of learners with SpLD, as well as assessing for specific learning difficulties (dyslexia). You can find out more about her work on louiseselbydyslexia.com.
