FACE-TO-FACE: The Power of Phonological Awareness for Speech-Language Pathologists

ESC-20 provides training, technical support, resources and information about speech therapy for students who have communication disorders.

Use of Quality Data to Drive Instruction

Important Session Information:

It is essential that learners have a foundation of phonological awareness upon which to build decoding and word writing skills. Struggling learners often fail to acquire this foundation from classroom instruction in general education and additionally require specialized intervention. Using their unique knowledge and skills speech-language pathologists can enhance the efforts of their school teams to promote students’ phonological awareness. In this workshop, participants will review foundational knowledge, learn skills and strategies to provide phonological awareness intervention, identify assessment methods to address assessment questions, and learn strategies to collaborate with teachers to help children apply their phonological awareness knowledge in reading and writing activities.


1. Describe multiple ways in which an SLP can contribute to assuring that all children have a foundation of phonological awareness on which to build decoding and spelling skills.

2. List the goals and objectives of phonological awareness intervention that enable a child to acquire a foundation of phonological awareness.

3. Compare and contrast phonological awareness instruction and decoding (phonics) instruction and word writing (spelling) instruction.

4. Write a present level of performance from a criterion-referenced assessment of phonological awareness.
