Using Speech-to-Print Activities that Leverage Oral Language for More Effective Literacy Outcomes (3.0 Maryland CEUs, .3 ASHA CEUs)

This workshop focuses on oral language as the foundation of reading, writing, spelling and the key to literacy success. This session provides a conceptual framework for and experience with activities that leverage students’ biological wiring for oral language to achieve greater outcomes in reading, writing, and spelling. Learn methods of instruction that benefit all students, including students with dyslexia/dysgraphia, oral language disorder, and cognitive impairment. Practice activities that integrate phonology and other oral language skills with orthography and other written language skills. Gain a new-found level of confidence in your ability to deliver speech-to-print, multi-linguistic word study. - Dr. Jan Wasowicz

Trauma Informed Lens on Navigating Therapeutic Intervention in Children with Autism (3.0 Maryland CEUs, .3 ASHA CEUs)

Since the Covid-19 Pandemic began, children across the country and the world have experienced significant changes within their homes, schools, and communities. Interactions with family members, teachers, therapists have suddenly shifted, and become unfamiliar, resulting in less productive opportunities for learning and growth. Children with autism are especially vulnerable to negative impacts, as they work to process complex emotions and implement successful coping strategies in their new environment. - Laura Sibbald
