Foundations of Spelling and Word-Level Reading

Presented by Kenn Apel, PhD, CCC-SLP

Foundations of Spelling and Word-Level Reading

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.

Spelling and word-level reading are language skills that are crucial for academic, vocational, and social success. Both written language skills are supported by five "building blocks" that enable individuals to decode and encode words. These building blocks include: phonemic awareness, orthographic pattern awareness, morphological awareness, semantic awareness, and mental graphemic representations. This course will introduce these five building blocks of literacy and discuss how they impact word-level literacy development. The developmental phases of spelling and word-level reading also will be discussed.

Assessment of Spelling and Word-Level Reading

Presented by Kenn Apel, PhD, CCC-SLP

Assessment of Spelling and Word-Level Reading

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.

Spelling and word-level reading are language skills that are crucial for academic, vocational, and social success. Both written language skills require individuals to use their phonemic awareness, orthographic pattern awareness, morphological awareness, and semantic awareness skills as well as their mental graphemic representations. This course will cover how speech-language pathologists and other educators/specialists can assess students' spelling and word-level reading abilities via norm-referenced and criterion-referenced measures. The goal of these assessments will be to determine which linguistic underpinning(s) may be leading to spelling and word-level reading deficits/difficulties.

Spelling and Word-Level Reading Intervention/Instruction

Presented by Kenn Apel, PhD, CCC-SLP

Spelling and Word-Level Reading Intervention/Instruction

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.

Spelling and word-level reading are language skills that are crucial for academic, vocational, and social success. A multilinguistic approach to word-level literacy intervention/instruction necessarily targets all five "building blocks" of word-level literacy (phonemic awareness, orthographic pattern awareness, morphological awareness, semantic awareness, and mental graphemic representations). This course will cover specific language-based activities to improve spelling and word-level reading skills. Specific suggestions for tasks that target the various linguistic underpinnings of spelling and word-level reading will be reviewed.
