AUT243-21 Phonological and Phonemic Awareness: Effective Instruction and Intervention for children with Dyslexia




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.

I am a primary teacher with over ten years experience. I initially began my career working with younger pupils in Senior Infants and First Class where I developed a great interest in literacy and language and how children learn. I am currently a Special Education Teacher in Durrow primary school , County Laois for the last number of years supporting pupils with a diverse range of learning needs and abilities across all classes. I have a particular interest in language and literacy interventions and the need for direct and explicit instruction for children with Dyslexia. I completed a Masters in Specific Learning Difficulties/Dyslexia in Dublin City University in 2019. I am a member of the Dyslexia Association of Ireland and the Literacy Association of Ireland. I am also a member of DySI Ireland.
