Description

Spelling is a critical component of writing and general literacy achievement. Even in this age of technological supports like spell check and auto correct, spelling remains a critical skill. Spelling is a complex language-based skill, and the literature suggests that linguistically-based spelling interventions targeting areas such as phonological awareness, orthographic awareness, and morphological awareness promote improved outcomes in spelling and word reading. Senior Advisor – Speech Language Therapy, Jenny Peach, will discuss how the awareness of sounds in words, knowledge of spelling patterns and morphological awareness influence spelling acquisition, decoding and reading comprehension.
