T26 - Vocabulary Instruction: When Using Language Doesn't Work, Use Semantic Reasoning

Nov 9, 2017 2:00pm ‐ Nov 9, 2017 3:30pm

Standard: $20.00


Seasoned speech-language pathologists will, in the context of gold-standard vocabulary instruction methods, share their highly visual instruction techniques, InferCabulary and WordQuations. Results of a recent independent research study are shared, showing the very significant impact the InferCabulary method has had on vocabulary learning. Materials are provided so attendees can immediately implement the methods.

Learning Outcomes:

  • MULTISENSORY STRUCTURED LANGUAGE INSTRUCTION: Assess multisensory language instruction and how it can effectively be taught in a classroom setting.
  • READING, SKILLS, & STRATEGIES: Examine the role of vocabulary acquisition and ability in listening and reading comprehension, and in speaking and writing.
  • TEACHING/INSTRUCTION/INTERVENTION: Discover the complexity of vocabulary knowledge and its important role in reading and reading intervention.
