Webinar - Phonological awareness – the key to speech, phonics and literacy!Date: Wednesday, 25 November 2020
The webinar is suitable for SNAs, class teachers, learning support teachers who work with early primary school (Junior Infants up to 2nd Class).
Speech difficulties, phonics, dyslexia, literacy outcomes - what’s the common denominator? Phonological awareness skills! Distinct from phonemic awareness, phonological awareness are the fundamental skills you may never have heard of. By providing your students with strong phonological awareness skills, you are providing them with the foundations for future success in many areas.
In this session we will cover:
