Two presentations from experts in the fields of speech and reading. 1) The Impact of Speech-Sound Disorders on Reading: we will discuss what parents can do to help their child develop speech sounds and foster a love of reading even before learning to read. For the older child, helpful tips on reading, typical vs. atypical speech patterns and how to decide when to seek professional help.
2) Helping Students Develop Appropriate Reading and Spelling Strategies Early On: Learn about phonological awareness and why its mastery prior to reading and spelling is encouraged. We will discuss how children transition from hearing and vocalizing sounds to blending and segmenting sounds in words to read and spell. We will also provide tips to help your child or student make progress in their reading development.
