We know that orthographic mapping, the process of storing words in long-term memory happens best if words are driven via the phonological route. Now what? How do we make that happen for the tens of thousands of words out there?
By taking four steps:

IMPORTANT NOTE ON COURSE ACCESS
Course access is for six weeks from first login. First login is not the day you bought the course, first log in is when you went to Open Learning (our learning management system) and clicked on the link that took you to the actual course. That’s when your time starts to count down. Six weeks from that moment, your access will cease. Theoretically, you could buy the course and keep it on the back-burner for years without losing your access. But the moment you become an active user on Open Learning, is the moment your clock starts ticking. We are charged per user, so we have to time-limit your access. If you find that you need to extend your access, you can purchase extensions, month by month, for AUD$20 using this link.
