Analysing Spelling Errors to Improve Literacy Outcomes 218P

Spelling is just one component of literacy but the implications of struggling to spell are significant. Decoding and encoding are two sides of the same coin, so why is it that some students can apparently read but fail when it comes to spelling?

This practical full-day workshop will address this question and explore how to analyse an individual’s spelling errors to reveal underlying deficits in particular areas including phonological awareness, knowledge of orthography, vocabulary, morphological and semantic relationships, and mental orthographic images. Strategies to address these deficits will be discussed.

Presenter: Kim Bloor, BA (Hons), MPsych (Ed. & Dev.), Dip. Ed, (Spec. Ed.). Kim is a Psychologist at DSF Literacy and Clinical Services where she assesses children, teenagers, and adults with learning difficulties and disabilities. She also consults with parents on appropriate evidence-based classroom and individual strategies to improve literacy.
