Diagnostic Center North (DCN) - Phonemic Awareness - Overview, Interventions and Strategies
At this point most educators have heard that phonemic awareness is important for students’ literacy learning. But what exactly is it? How is it related to reading and writing? How do I know if my students have it? How do I teach it if they don’t? This seminar will take a deep dive into phonemic awareness. We will talk about what it is, why it is important for reading and writing, ways to assess it and evidence-based ways to teach it. The content will be appropriate for those professionals working with early readers and writers of any age or grade level.Participants Will:
- Define terms such as phonics, phoneme, phonemic and phonological awareness.
- Describe the development of phonemic awareness and its importance to literacy learning.
- Implement evidence-based intervention to support the development of phonemic awareness. A Certificate of Completion is available to participants. This may be used to document professional development hours or applied towards the credential requirements for Education Specialist Level II non-university activities. The Diagnostic Center is also a California Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology Board approved continuing professional development provider.
