Louise will show some highlights of the Morph Mastery materials, including assessments, films, and games. You’ll find out some techniques used in Morph Mastery and gain some ideas for how to support reading and spelling development in a school setting or at home.
This will include a brief look at evidence for a morphological approach to reading and spelling intervention, including Louise’s own experience of working with children who repeatedly fail with phonics, and the impact of the Morph Mastery pilot.
If you’re lucky, Louise might even show you The Morph, the secret handshake enjoyed by recruited Morph Masters across the country…
Louise worked as a specialist advisory teacher in Hertfordshire Local Authority for 11 years, where she gained extensive experience in training teaching assistants and SENCOs in meeting the needs of learners with specific learning difficulties.
Before this, Louise worked 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 and supporting schools as well as assessing for specific learning difficulties (dyslexia).
Louise’s interest is in enabling and equipping staff in schools at grass roots level to meet learners’ needs, and parents at home keen to support their child’s reading and spelling development.
Louise’s recently published book, Morph Mastery, a Morphological Intervention for Reading and Spelling, was born from research during her Level 7 diploma, when she found that some learners’ vocabulary skills had reached a plateau between Year 2 and Year 6.
The aim of her research was to address this gap by providing an alternative intervention to traditional repeated phonics. After a number of years of trialling the morphological approach, and an official pilot in Hertfordshire, Morph Mastery was born.
There will be an opportunity to buy Louise's book at the Presentation.
