Important Session Information:


This online, three-day Visual Phonics workshop consists of six, one hour and twenty-minute sessions. Each day includes two, one hour and twenty-minute sessions which last from 9:00 a.m. - 11:50 am and includes a ten minute break between sessions.

This workshop explores the multi-sensory Visual Phonics program and its benefits in reinforcing oral language, speech, and beginning literacy skills for students who are deaf or hard of hearing, bilingual, or possess diverse learning needs. This workshop develops the skills necessary to implement Visual Phonics in therapeutic and instructional settings. Participants will learn to recognize, produce, and blend the Visual Phonics hand cues and written symbols for the 42+ English phonemes. This workshop also explores research-based strategies to support beginning spelling and reading instruction with the support of Visual Phonics in therapeutic and instructional settings. Participants are provided opportunities to practice techniques for teaching: Letter Recognition, Phoneme awareness, and Phoneme-grapheme (sound-symbol) association. The training is most appropriate for anyone who works with students who are struggling in their beginning reading and writing development, auditory discrimination abilities, and speech production abilities (e.g. struggling students in the general education classroom, students who are in special education, who are deaf and hard of hearing, bilingual).

**Select Visual Phonics materials will be provided with registration.** 

If you register before May 17, 2021 that will allow for ample time to have the materials mailed to you.

** Eight TSHA CEU credits will be given pending approval. **

  • This is a live, interactive workshop. The video will need to be turned on to participate.

Participants will not receive credit for the class if their video is off.
  • To receive Visual Phonics credit, participants are required to complete one of these activities:
    - Video Submission: After the final session, each participant will record themselves producing the Visual Phonics handshapes and share the video with the presenter (via Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive, etc.).
