This webinar discusses phonological awareness and phonemic awareness and explains how dyslexia is linked to phonological difficulties, linking theory to practice.
It highlights the pivotal role of phonological awareness as a predictor for reading success and how effective instruction and intervention is needed to promote phonological awareness for children with literacy difficulties/dyslexia. However, the instructional strategies discussed in this webinar will essentially benefit all learners in our classrooms, allowing for a more inclusive approach in education.
Teachers will be provided with evidenced based approaches and strategies for building phonological and phonemic awareness skills in children (aged 4-9) and they will be advised on key strategies, interventions and key assessments they can use in their classrooms and special education settings everyday.
