Science of Reading 2/10/2024

02 Oct 2024 9:30 am - 3:30 pm 715 South Rd, Blackforest


Learning to read can be challenging, both cognitively and linguistically, and teaching students how to read effortlessly and with comprehension takes years of well-designed and carefully delivered instruction.

The body of knowledge and skill sometimes referred to as ‘The Science of Reading’ can be thought of as the knowledge we have gained, through decades of multi-disciplinary research on:
•    How children learn to read
•    Why some students have great difficulty
•    What the essential components of reading instruction are, and
•    Why these components are important.

In this one-day workshop, each of these areas will be explored, along with evidence-informed models of reading development and the research underpinning the development of reading accuracy, fluency, and comprehension. In addition, the implications this has for both whole class instruction and individual or small group intervention will be reviewed.

This workshop was developed by Mandy Nayton OAM – CEO of DSF Literacy and Clinical Services and President of AUSPELD. Educational and Developmental Psychologist DSF Literacy + Clinical Service.
