Simultaneously Improve Speech Intelligibility, Enhance Phonological Awareness and Develop Language/Literacy Skills with Orthographic Instruction!

Simultaneously improve speech intelligibility while developing a strong literacy foundation and expanding language skills with orthographic instruction (printed cues)!

Printed cues activate the orthographic processor and synchronize the four processors in the brain.  Natural learning steps create a fun and functional environment!

This workshop provides busy professionals and parents with more effective and more efficient tools to establish literacy, improve speech and language skills and, subsequently, to enhance the lives of children.








Autism Spectrum Disorders ~ Build Speech and Literacy Skills 
with Orthographic Instruction!

Studies suggest that many children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD)  have poor phonological awareness skills.  Orthographic instruction (printed cues) promotes development of basic speech and literacy skills by building phonological awareness.

Exposing children with ASD to early literacy interventions with embedded printed (orthographic) cues is imperative.  Printed cues activate and synchronize the processors (orthographic, phonological, meaning and context) within the brain resulting in improved communication/literacy skills.

Different than other “literacy” workshops, this workshop will provide specific guidance for children with autism in addition to general guidance for other children.
