Missouri State University is offering a free Visual Phonics Workshop. The workshop is for anyone who works with a person with a hearing impairment. Visual Phonics is a tool that uses a combination of visual, tactile, kinesthetic, and auditory feedback to facilitate the development of phonemic awareness, reading, spelling, and speech production skills. The system consists of 45 hand movements and written symbols that represent each phoneme and relate to how a sound is produced.
The workshop will be held on November 1-2, 2013, and again February 7-8, 2014. The two-day workshop is free and will be held at the Lincoln University Conference Center in Jefferson City, Missouri. To register, contact Amanda Garner at (712) 303-0361 or by email at Amanda138@live.missouristate.edu. Registrations are limited to 15 participants.
