Event description

Description

The Science Behind the Letter Sounds: A Process of Discovery and Clarity

NOTE: This is NOT a webinar - it is a LIVE Event in Syracuse NY.

The Reading League is delighted to welcome Shira Naftel back to Syracuse to present on this important topic. At our 2018 Annual Conference, Shira presented this as a one hour workshop, and it was so highly rated that we asked her to return and expand it for a two and a half-hour Live Event.

SESSION DESCRIPTION:

This highly interactive Live Event will focus on what research has identified as the most basic component of the beginning reading process - the production of individual speech sounds. Utilizing a "Discovery Dialogue" process, participants will compare, contrast, and categorize the oral-motor features of both consonant and vowel sounds. This process will enable participants, through the discovery and identification of articulator feedback, to produce isolated speech sounds (phonemes) correctly. Participants will gain a deeper understanding about why some individuals have difficulty perceiving/differentiating certain sounds more than others, and what can be done to empower these individuals to succeed. Throughout this session, key teaching techniques that encourage sensory-cognitive processing, metacognition, and self-correction will be demonstrated.

PRESENTER:

Shira Naftel, M.Ed., is an educational consultant who has worked closely with school administrators, teachers, and parents in Monsey, NY, for the past 23 years. She has been instrumental in bringing evidence-aligned, multisensory professional development opportunities into the Monsey community. She engages the use of multisensory techniques to enhance educational outcomes in the areas of reading, spelling, and language comprehension. She has dedicated the last 18 summers to organizing and teaching a four-week comprehensive literacy course, under the auspices of the Slingerland Institute for Literacy, to empower teachers to meet the needs of their students.
