Event description

Description

Presenter - Jenny Baker

This workshop will run across 3 ONLINE sessions from 7-9pm NZST. Sessions will be live (7-9pm NZST) and will not be recorded, or available for later viewing.

Part 1 – Monday 22nd June 2020

Part 2 – Thursday 25th June 2020

Part 3 – Monday 29th June 2020

This series of 2 hour tele-training modules is an online version of what would have been covered in the original face-to-face 1-day event planned for 15th June 2020. Single registration cost is for each individual, not per site. Each person must register and attendance is required for all 3 sessions. Zoom will be used to deliver the training with “meeting room” details emailed to participants prior to each module. You will need to download Zoom software to your computer. A webcam and inbuilt microphone on your computer is also preferable so you can fully participate.

Following this event participants will:

  • to identify the different stages of spelling development from early phonological awareness through to advanced orthographic representations
  • to “unpack” the scope and sequence of a structured synthetic phonics program
  • to understand the rule-based principles that underlie much of our spelling system
  • to become aware of the cognitive, orthographic and linguistic contributions to the spelling system
  • to become familiar with a range of assessment procedures
  • to apply a diagnostic framework to the analysis of spelling errors
  • to develop strategies for goal setting
  • to select evidenced-based principles, practices and programs for effective spelling instruction

The workshop will examine how spelling proceeds in the typically developing child; it will also explore how poor processing and delayed language can affect its developmental route. In addition, a major part of the day will be devoted to showcasing evidenced-based assessment as well as intervention techniques. The workshop will focus on spelling development in Year 1 to Year 6, but the principles can be applied to high school students as well. Problem based clinical activities will be used to consolidate the discussion throughout the workshop. Intervention principles will emphasise explicit and systematic instruction as well as the response to intervention model. At a clinical level, participants will learn how to apply these principles in order to develop a tailored intervention within a variety of service delivery frameworks.
