CEUs for SLPs

Spelling and Morphology Master Course

Master Class Series, 8-hours

Course Description

Part 1
This part presented the basis and components for an evidence based approach to assessment of spelling. In this seminar, the metalinguistic skills that support spelling was discussed and then a demonstration of implementing a metalinguistic assessment approach that incorporates these skills was demonstrated. 
Part 2
This session presented the basis and components for an evidence based approach to spelling intervention. In this seminar, the metalinguistic skills that support spelling was discussed and then a demonstration of implementing a metalinguistic intervention approach that incorporates these skills was presented.  
Part 3
This part addressed the difference between morphological use and morphological awareness.  The various components of morphological awareness and the relation of morphological awareness to children’s literacy success were highlighted.  Strategies and tasks for assessing the components of morphological awareness including key clinical considerations were presented.
Part 4
This course will review the importance of morphological awareness instruction for supporting the literacy skills of children of a variety of ages. A summary of the research-base on the effectiveness of morphological awareness instruction/intervention will be highlighted. Practical and easily implementable strategies and activities for supporting the morphological awareness skills of children of a variety of age ranges and abilities will be presented.
