Outline
This talk will examine spelling as a skill and also as a developmental process. It will explore reasons why children struggle with spelling and what can be done to overcome these difficulties. It will also examine strategies to aid spelling development. Using case studies, it will show how to detect spelling difficulties and suggest methodologies

Expected Outcomes
Participants will have an increased awareness of spelling as a skill and how spelling develops. They will be able to examine children's writing and detect strengths and weaknesses and build up a profile of the child's spelling development. It will also lead participants to reflect on their own classroom practice and how the quality of errors determines spelling improvement.
