Professional Development

PAF’s professional development focuses on multisensory techniques for teaching reading, spelling, and handwriting in the primary grades. Topics include research-based instructional practices on developing accurate decoding and fluent reading through direct explicit instruction, building vocabulary and comprehension, lesson planning, and assessments.

Courses are taught and support is given by Master Teachers with years of experience teaching PAF in public and independent schools. 

For K-5 teachers.


For parents looking to enhance their knowledge about research-based reading instruction and the fundamentals of the PAF Reading Program, we recommend they attend courses offered at the Windward Institute. Please contact for further information.
