Vocabulary is at the core of learning and connects to all four language domains – listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Students with language-based learning disabilities (LBLD) often struggle to effectively understand and use vocabulary, requiring explicit instruction to build word knowledge across content areas. This webinar will review the different types of vocabulary, as well as present strategies to aid vocabulary development, storage, retention, and recall.
This course is appropriate for educators at all grade levels.
All necessary materials will be shared electronically.
