NEW: Vocabulary Development and Morphology

Instructor: Lydia H. Soifer, PhD
Date: Wednesday, October 19, 2022, 4:30 – 6:30 p.m.
Fee: $120

Vocabulary development and reading comprehension maintain a reciprocal relationship. While one of the foundational skills of reading comprehension is vocabulary knowledge, successful comprehension also leads to increased vocabulary growth and knowledge. The focus of this class is on understanding different levels of vocabulary knowledge in all children with a focus on students with language difficulties and diagnosed disorders. Lydia Soifer, PhD, will present techniques for building lexical and morphological skills to support reading comprehension and written language development. Participants will increase their knowledge about vocabulary development and gain practical strategies they can use with children in grades K to 5 in classroom and home settings.
