Do you have questions how to teach syllable types, syllabication, and spelling patterns? Do you have questions as you progress to more advanced levels in your scope and sequence? This workshop will be rich with video clips from 1:1, small group, and whole class O-G instruction with multiple opportunities to practice and trouble -shoot.

I truly believe that Karen teaching my son how to utilize PROMPT techniques has minimized frustrations that stemmed from not being able to talk. Despite his apraxia, words he once had trouble completing now come out complete and clear thanks to Karen’s help.
