See the Sound - Visual Phonics

Date: Jun 27, 2017 - Jun 28, 2017

Time: 8:30 - 3:30 CDT

Location: GRREC Office and Training Facility

Presenters: ,

Cost: GRECC members: $50.00, Non-GRECC members: $50.00

Description:

The Special Education Division of the Green River Regional Educational Cooperative is pleased to offer See the Sound – Visual Phonics training.  See the Sound – Visual Phonics is a system of 46 unique hand cues and symbols that represent the sounds of English.  It is a somewhat simplified, visual, kinesthetic version of the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA).  Participants will learn a hand cue for each of the 46 sounds in English.  Each hand cue is associated in some way with the production of the particular sound.  See the Sound – Visual Phonics benefits students who read below grade level in general or special education settings, children in early education programs, at-risk readers, students who are deaf or hard or hearing with any degree of hearing loss, and students learning English as a second language.

How Does See the Sound-Visual Phonics Help?

  • See the Sound-Visual Phonics is the first step to reading, as sound (not the alphabet) is the root of language, and it is easy to use. Once a student has learned it, s/he has a powerful tool to learn basic literacy and communication skills. Most beginning readers learn it more quickly than other methods. Many “remedial” readers can learn it in a few weeks.
  • See the Sound-Visual Phonics helps students pronounce and understand words so quickly that almost from the beginning, comprehension, not decoding, becomes the natural focus of reading.
  • See the Sound-Visual Phonics is cost effective and can be incorporated into almost any traditional reading program to create a comprehensive curriculum.

Teaching Social Emotional Skills to Students with Significant Behavioral Challenges

Description:

Social and emotional skill deficits are defining characteristics of youth with emotional and behavioral disorders.  Cognitive Behavioral Intervention (CBI) is now recognized as an evidence-based practice for teaching social skills, coping skills, and replacement behaviors. Working with students on their "inner speech" teaches students how to control their own behavior while minimizing the need for external reinforcements.  In addition, our teaching does not stop with academics, but must include targeted, social skills instruction.  Participants will learn how to develop their own Toolbox for Teaching Social Emotional Competencies in youth along with receiving several "ready to go" activities and resources through this interactive workshop.

Learning Topics:

  1. Identify interfering behaviors, social and emotional skills to target for intervention and        instruction.
  2. Assist participants in developing a plan for supporting social-emotional competencies and reducing challenging behaviors.
  3. An introductory tool box of ideas on how to teach social and emotional skills will be shared.
