Reading Difficulties in the Early Years
September 28th & October 11th (7pm)
Facilitator: Dr Jennifer O'Sullivan
Dr Jen O’Sullivan will look at how, as teachers, we can identify children who are struggling to acquire crucial foundational reading skills. We will also investigate early literacy screeners and the important part they play in helping to prevent future reading difficulties.
Dr. Jen will examine early interventions that can be implemented to support young children struggling to learn to read.
