Teachers and related service providers across early, middle, and secondary grades are invited to join this webinar with Dr. Nickola Wolf Nelson to gain new insights for identifying struggling readers and writers, understanding their needs, and helping them improve.
Dr. Nelson will share a quadrant model for plotting language/literacy skills along two dimensions that can explain dyslexia and other reading, spelling, and oral language problems. She also will walk us through five tips for working with students who are struggling with reading and writing, including how to:
- Use the quadrant model based on the simple view of reading and the Student Language Scale (SLS) to screen for literacy difficulties and decide when to refer
- Use standardized testing from a tool such as the Test of Integrated Language and Literacy Skills (TILLS) to understand students’ strengths and needs
- Embed explicit instruction on word structure into grade level curricula to develop all students’ reading, decoding, spelling, and vocabulary skills
- Embed instruction within the curriculum to heighten students’ awareness of vocabulary, complex syntax, and discourse organization
- Use writing instruction within curricular assignments to build language/literacy skills for all students and as a collaborative intervention context for students who are struggling
There will be time after Dr. Nelson’s presentation for her to answer your questions about teaching students with literacy problems. This live, interactive session is designed for PreK-12 educators, administrators, special educators, speech-language pathologists, psychologists, and reading specialists.
