Training and Support Material
In addition to the book, Dr. Haddox has developed training and support materials that can be ordered only from ERI as separate components or in a package.
- NEW! 48-minute Video Training DVD–in less than an hour, this video gives you a great “quick start” by introducing you to Direct Instruction techniques and how to be successful; demonstrating how to present and pronounce all the sounds and key exercises in an encouraging manner and how to do corrections. See how Dr. Haddox uses the book to teach 3-year olds.
- Audio Training CD–Concentrated, half hour, portable training CD that provides you with a good start to teaching. You can listen to sounds pronunciation and teaching techniques for key exercises while you are in your car, work around the house or yard. The sounds and key exercise content is the same as the “Quick Start” video, so could be used in combination with it, with the 4-hour training video, or as a stand alone
- 4–Hour Direct Instruction Video Training Set, “Reading for All”,(DVD) For more intensive training, this video set, with guides for facilitators and participants, provides excellent, specific training on 50 key exercises and related support material (see below). This training set was designed for and is used successfully with GROUPS, but is also successfully used by individuals: parents, grandparents, homeschoolers, professional tutors, teachers, volunteers (high school and college students), parent involvement programs, service/church groups.
