See the Sound Visual Phonics (STS/VP) is a multisensory system that represents the sounds of English in a concrete and visible way, providing a multi-modal means for students to map sound-to-print. Foundational literacy skills, inclusive of the Alphabetic Principle, phonological awareness, and phonemic awareness skills are necessary for success in reading, spelling & writing. Since STS/VP is a strategy (not a program), it is able to be integrated into existing phonics programs and literacy curricula, and can be an integral component of Differentiated Instruction. STS/VP can be used as both universal and targeted interventions with the RTI or MTSS interventions.
STS/VP is regularly used in General Education classrooms, preschool settings, elementary & secondary Special Education programs, ELL programs, classrooms and itinerant services for Deaf & Hard of Hearing, and adult literacy programs. Visual Phonics is also an effective tool for helping students with speech disorders to develop/modify speech sound productions and auditory discrimination skills, beginning as early as age 3.
Participants will learn the STS/VP system and appropriate uses of STS/VP with students in various settings and varying needs. Direct application and implementation for instructional practices for Common Core, RTI or MTSS will be discussed. Participants will leave with a specific plan for implementation at the end of the course.
Note:Refunds will be issued only to participants who call the ROE office to cancel (5) working days before the date of the program. BHS ROE CO-OP participants will be charged if they do not follow this same cancelation procedure.
