Language Awareness and Literacy Success for Adolescents (On Demand Webinar)
Already an ASHA Learning Pass subscriber?
webinar explores the foundational theory and key components of a language-based
literacy model to guide assessment and intervention for adolescents who
struggle with language and/or literacy development. The speaker discusses a
multilinguistic literacy approach—i.e., a focus of explicit reflection on the
foundational skills of sounds (phonology), letters (orthography), meaning
(morphology), vocabulary (semantics), and grammar (syntax) in the context of
written language. The webinar discusses variations of this type of
language-focused literacy approach to improve the literacy skills of
adolescents at risk for and diagnosed with developmental language disorders,
dyslexia, and reading comprehension and spelling deficits.
