ED557 - Language to Literacy Acquisition and Development


This course provides a study for teachers in the identification and referral of individuals with communication disorders. It explores language development in children and adolescents with special needs. This is an essential course for understanding the teaching of reading through the lens of literacy and language development. Students explore literacy from the earliest stage to maturity in the processes of reading, writing, and spelling. This course is built on the understanding that reading is a language-based activity and explores the links between speech and print. The developmental approach to learning to read is especially important when working with children of diverse backgrounds. Emergent and beginning literacy assessments are introduced and students use relevant data to inform planning, implementation, and reflection of a lesson with an emergent or beginning reader.l and informal evaluation procedures are examined, intervention strategies appropriate to the language impaired are reviewed and language arts strategies are developed.
