Literacy revolution: how Speech to Print can help your child learn to read

May 25 @ 7:00 PM

Free

Is your child struggling with reading? This presentation will cover a revolutionary way of teaching based on the science of reading. The science of reading continues to evolve as a result of the phenomenal brain imaging resources we currently have. This has allowed teachers to fine tune their methodology after seeing pitfalls in other, widely used programs.

One such teacher created curriculum, Spell- Links, that has been highly effective with kids who plateaued quickly using other methods. The brain is biologically wired only for oral language—speaking, listening, and understanding—not for written language. There are no genes and no neurological or biological structures specific to reading and writing. To successfully read and write, each brain must “repurpose” regions biologically designed for other purposes and create new circuits and neural connections. Learn how starting with speech leads to far more lasting literacy results.
