High quality literacy instruction provides all students with a solid foundation for building strong reading skills. This session will outline the typical development of literacy skills and signs of a possible reading disability in Kindergarten to Grade 3 students. An explicit and multi-sensory approach to instruction focused on the development of solid phonemic awareness and phonics skills will be introduced.
