Phonemic awareness, a subset of phonological awareness, is the strongest predictor of future reading ability. However, most students with dyslexia present with a phonological processing deficit that results in difficulty identifying speech sounds. This 1-hour webinar will explore the connection between phonemic awareness and learning to read, before diving into specific activities that can help students of any age strengthen their ability to segment, blend, delete, add, substitute, and manipulate speech sounds in words.
This webinar is appropriate for educators at all grade levels.
All materials will be shared electronically.
