ACADEMIC INTERVENTION I
2016 Summer Term
Special Education 486
The course is about phonemic awareness, phonics, advanced word reading, and reading fluency for students who struggle to read and have disabilities. Through the use of research validated strategies in phonemic awareness, decoding, fluency, spelling, and handwriting, the processes and skills children and adolescents engage in to read fluently are examined as well as similarities and differences in reading instruction in special and general education. Specifically, the difficulties encountered by students with language and learning differences are reviewed and "best practices" in teaching phonemic awareness, decoding/phonics, and spelling are emphasized through discussion, modelling, and demonstrating instructional strategies.
