Full-Day Workshop

Seminar: LINDAMOOD-BELL SERIES- Seeing Stars® Symbol Imagery for Phonological and Orthographic Processing in Reading and Spelling

The Nancibell® Seeing Stars® (SI) program develops symbol imagery: the ability to visualize sounds and letters in words for both phonological and orthographic processing. Students move through a series of steps from single consonants/vowels to multisyllabic and contextual reading to develop the imagery-language connection for competency in written language.

The two-day Seeing Stars® (SI) workshop focuses on helping students develop symbol imagery for written language. Through a series of steps, SI students learn to visualize sounds and letters in words, thereby improving phonological and orthographic processing in both receptive and expressive written language. All steps of the program are introduced, practiced, and modelled.

* Fees include a complete program kit worth about USD500

Dates:25 and 26 Nov 2020 (Wed and Thu)
Time:9.00am - 5.00pm (Singapore Standard Time GMT+0800)
