One way to improve our clients’ communication is to help them improve their spelling skills. In this program, we’ll use writing samples from students struggling with written language and we’ll examine the potential causes of their spelling difficulties while analyzing common errors (e.g., phonemic, orthographic pattern, and morphological awareness). Following the analysis, we’ll develop goals and then consider and practice sample intervention strategies and activities that address the students’ specific linguistic deficiencies. Throughout the session, we’ll address the rationale for the SLP’s role in assessing and remediating spelling.
You will be able to:
- name and describe the factors that influence why words are spelled the way they are
- describe optimal spelling assessment strategies
- tailor instructional methods to meet students’ spelling needs
