Reading with TLC Condensed: Full Training in Lively Letter and Sight Words...
Mailman Center Innovation and Connection Conference
Participants (anyone involved with teaching literacy) learn language-based, structured techniques for training letter sound associations, phonemic awareness, speech production, phonetic decoding (sounding out words for reading), phonetic encoding (sounding out words for spelling), and acquisition of sight words. Suggestions will be shared for compensation for weak working memory and for developing the rapid naming skills that significantly impact the ability to develop reading automaticity and fluency. As this program is used within all three tiers of the Response to intervention model of instruction, ideas for program implementation for regular education and intervention settings will be discussed.
Throughout the training, participants are given practical ideas on how to integrate the Reading with TLC methods with reading programs already existing, and how to logistically implement the program within various school and clinical settings. Direct instruction, demonstrations, hands-on practice, and videos of students in small group and classroom settings enhance the learning experience during this dynamic workshop.
