Dates: Thursday September 21st & Friday September 22nd, 2017 | Time: 2:30 – 5:00 p.m

Reading involves multiple cognitive, emotional, and social abilities, each of which influences the beginning reader’s success. Learning to read is a sequential process; a cognitive ability to identify the sounds with their symbols, connecting them together in order to make words, sentences, and paragraphs. Strategies that help teachers to learn how to improve child’s reading skills is what this Reading Skills session is all about.
