Instructional Techniques to Increase Early Literacy Skills in Young Students – 2 hours

Presented by Mindy Bridges, PhD, CCC-SLP, University of Kansas Medical Center

Early intervention with young children at risk for later having reading disabilities is critical to ensuring future academic success. Research over the past decades has provided much insight on the early skills that young children need in order to become good word readers and comprehenders (for a review, see Hogan, Bridges, Justice, and Cain, 2011). Such skills include letter-sound knowledge, phonological awareness, vocabulary and narrative language. In this presentation, a brief overview of these skills will be provided and then direct intervention techniques will be shared.

At the end of this presentation, participants will be able to describe the importance of early identification for students at risk for later-reading disabilities, name and briefly describe at least two skills that are related to later reading success and apply intervention techniques to their own clinical practice.
