Webinar: Multisensory Structured Literacy Routines to Reinforce Reading and Writing
August 25, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
This webinar, Multisensory Structured Literacy: Simple Routines to Reinforce Phonemic Awareness, Phonics, Morphology, Syntax, and Comprehension, is presented by Andrew Stetkevich.
Research supports that students with dyslexia should be taught how to read and write through a multisensory structured language approach. This webinar will explore the essential components of this approach. Participants will learn simple routines and strategies to reinforce phonemic awareness and phonemic proficiency. The webinar will also detail phonics routines in the areas of sound/symbol identification, decoding, and the use of syllable types and syllable division to decode longer words. In addition, explicit strategies to address reading for meaning will be demonstrated by focusing on the components of morphology, syntax, and basic reading comprehension. Participants who complete the webinar will receive practical structured language strategies to reinforce foundational reading skills at home, school, or in a distance learning format.
