Integrated, Not Isolated: Practical Integration of Phonemic Awareness Within Early Reading Instruction
Phonemic awareness is crucial for reading development, however, it is not always clear how instruction in this skill area can be effectively integrated within reading instruction. This session will review research on phonemic awareness instruction, including evidence on methods associated with stronger reading outcomes, and open questions that research needs to address. Strategies and approaches to better integrating support for phonemic awareness within reading instruction and intervention will be presented, along with ways to effectively interpret phonemic awareness assessment data.
