Time Start/End: 09:00/17:00Lindamood Phoneme Sequencing® (LiPS®) Program for Reading, Spelling, and Speech

Dates:  14 - 16 June 2021 (Mon - Wed)
Time:   9:00 am – 5:00 pm (Singapore Standard Time GMT +0800)
Venue: Live Online 

This course explores the sensory-cognitive processes basic to phonemic processing, decoding, spelling, and reading in context. Class members will learn the role of phonemic awareness in 1) tracking sounds and letters within words, 2) decoding, 3) spelling and 4) development of fluency in contextual reading. The class will learn to develop phoneme awareness for all ages of students. Study and supervised practice will allow class members to learn to respond to the response to develop the sensory-cognitive function of phonemic awareness and apply that to improved reading and spelling. In addition to demonstration and practice in developmental techniques, class members participate in evaluating their own phonemic awareness—an individual's own phonemic processing is basic to a full understanding and use of the assessment and instructional techniques presented. Discussion, demonstration, and supervised practice in techniques are utilized to teach class members questioning techniques to stimulate the integration of auditory, visual, and articulatory cues. Application of this processing is applied to decoding and spelling. Information and techniques are gained through discussion, demonstration, video, reading, and supervised practice.
