Description

Beginning readers must effectively and quickly blend sounds into words and segment (pull apart) sounds within words. These phonemic-awareness skills are the foundation for fluent reading and spelling. Children with dyslexia, auditory processing, and language-based learning disabilities often have weaknesses in blending and segmenting sounds. Learn effective and fun ways to help strengthen these skills in young learners by using activities that involve movement and help make these abstract skills more concrete, engaging, and understandable.

Learning Outcome:

  • TEACHING/INSTRUCTION/INTERVENTION: Recognize the various speech/language issues of children who have dyslexia and other related language learning disabilities.
