Read with Me! Engaging Parents as Partners in Early Literacy Development

Course: #6712 1 Hour

This course is part of the 2014 Nancy McKinley Lecture Series. SLPs routinely suggest that parents read to their children to facilitate the development of language and pre-literacy skills. However, parents are not typically provided with information regarding the most effective ways to read with their children and the kinds of books that are most effective in building better talkers and readers. Participants in this course will be introduced to six interactive reading strategies that parents can use to support early language and literacy development through shared reading. Appropriate books for use with each strategy will be demonstrated and a family reading book list will be shared.
