Understanding the Role of Phonemic Proficiency in Boosting Reading Skills in Struggling Readers
This presentation will focus on emerging research suggesting that proficiency in phoneme awareness skills is essential for building a large and continuously expanding sight vocabulary. This session will address the phonological skills needed to remember and instantly identify written words. Most assume that phoneme skills are limited to K-1 and are assumed to be associated with phonic development. Yet decades of research on orthographic learning clearly shows that phoneme-level skills are foundational for remembering the words we read. The skills needed for word-level reading and discuss techniques that promote that skill will be highlighted.

Recent Advances in Understanding Word-Level Reading Problems: Implications for Instruction and Intervention
This session will focus on how children learn to read words and why some children struggle. Understanding the nature of word-level reading development and word-level reading problems will guide both instruction and intervention. Studies consistently show that the most commonly used intervention approaches provide limited benefits for weak readers. However, other studies have shown that some approaches can yield very large reading gains for such students, and these will be the focus of the presentation.
