Content

Join this 'hands on' session and take home skills, activities and assessments to use the next day. This course will focus on two key aspects, Literacy and Differentiated instruction.

Literacy is a constant interaction between auditory and visual processing that connects all forms of information to make language understood. This session will present strategies to simultaneously address receptive and expressive skill growth and promote literacy for all levels.

Differentiated Instruction uses assessment and research based teaching techniques to address specific individual needs. This session will provide specific diagnostic instruction techniques to maximise instruction for all levels of students. By using these strategies, instruction can be differentiated to meet each student's unique needs and to recognise diverse levels of expertise and experience.

Target Audience

Teachers of the Deaf, mainstream teachers, speech and language therapists.
