Dr. Bray will begin this presentation with an overview of phonology processing and then focus on phonemic awareness, a skill not limited to the needs of young children. Dr. Bray concurs with researcher Marilyn Jager Adams: “Faced with an alphabetic script, children’s levels of phonemic awareness may be the single most powerful determinant of their success—or failure—in learning to read.” Learn why phonemes are the raw material from which literacy is woven. Learn how phonemic awareness is linked closely to the alphabetic code. Engage in multi sensory classroom activities to teach phonemic awareness that you can apply easily tomorrow!
