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.
- After this course, participants will be able to summarize the current research related to shared reading and early language and literacy development.
- After this course, participants will be able to use, and train parents to use, interactive reading strategies that build language and early literacy skills for early learners.
- After this course, participants will be able to select appropriate children’s literature to support the use of interactive reading strategies.
- After this course, participants will be able to implement a parent training program for early language and literacy development.
