Summer Symposium 2017
July 21 @ 7:45 am - 4:30 pm
Cooper Lecture Series
The success of students’ academic, vocational, and social endeavors often hinges on their reading and writing abilities. These two sessions (morning and afternoon) will take an integrative look at two specific areas of literacy development: spelling and word-level reading. Spelling and word-level reading are supported by the same underlying linguistic abilities. After a review of the development of these language and literacy skills, specific guidelines and suggestions will be offered for assessment, instruction, and remediation. Ramifications of this approach for working with children with sound system disorders and other disabilities will be covered.
Registration information to follow.
