Full-Day Workshop

Seminar: Lindamood Phoneme Sequencing® (LiPS®) Program for Reading, Spelling, and Speech

This course explores the sensory-cognitive processes basic to phonemic processing, decoding, spelling, and reading in context. Class members will learn the role of phonemic awareness in 1) tracking sounds and letters within words, 2) decoding, 3) spelling and 4) development of fluency in contextual reading. The class will learn to develop phoneme awareness for all ages of students. Study and supervised practice will allow class members to learn to respond to the response to develop the sensory-cognitive function of phonemic awareness and apply that to improved reading and spelling. In addition to demonstration and practice in developmental techniques, class members participate in evaluating their own phonemic awareness—an individual's own phonemic processing is basic to a full understanding and use of the assessment and instructional techniques presented. Discussion, demonstration, and supervised practice in techniques are utilized to teach class members questioning techniques to stimulate the integration of auditory, visual, and articulatory cues. Application of this processing is applied to decoding and spelling. Information and techniques are gained through discussion, demonstration, video, reading, and supervised practice.

Speaker: Brilliana Rawlins

Brilliana Rawlins has worked in education for nearly 20 years. Her background is in math education at the secondary level. Brilliana has been with Lindamood-Bell for 14 years and has engaged in professional development in over 40 states and 5 countries, training thousands of educators in the research-validated programs authored by Lindamood-Bell’s founders. She has facilitated a wide range of initiatives, including Special Education grants, second language acquisition, and dyslexia law implementation. As the Manager of International Endeavors, Brilliana collaborates with educators from around the globe on a daily basis. She currently lives in Reno, Nevada, USA.

Course Outline
  • The Gestalt: An overview of the theory and research behind the Lindamood Phoneme Sequencing Program
  • The Reading Paradigm and Integration of the Sensory-cognitive Functions: Phonemic Awareness, Symbol Imagery, and Concept Imagery
  • Overview of the LiPS Program Steps
  • Introduction to and demonstration of the LiPS Program Steps:
    1. Discovery of oral-motor-kinesthetic features of consonants: Consonant Brother Pairs and Cousins
    2. Discovery of oral-motor-kinesthetic features of vowels: The Vowel Circle
    3. Tracking: Using oral-motor feedback to sequence phonemes in syllables with mouth pictures.
    4. Hierarchy of English syllable structures: How to write “chains” of syllables, simple to complex.
    5. Tracking: Representing sequence of sounds in syllables with colored squares.
    6. Letter magnets for reading and spelling
    7. Reading and Spelling on paper
    8. Developing Sight Words
    9. Overlap of processing to tracking, reading, and spelling multi-syllable words: conceptualizing and sequencing syllable and sounds within those syllables, detecting the accented syllable, introduction of affixes and open/closed syllable concept, and syllabication
    10. Integration of decoding, sight words, and context for reading on the page
Course Objectives
  1. Understand the three sensory-cognitive factors that underlie the development of language and literacy processing.
  2. Understand the gestalt of the learning process through the Dual Coding Theory of cognitive development.
  3. Understand the factors that underlie the development of reading and spelling.
  4. Understand the reading process as an integration of auditory, visual, and language processes.
  5. Understand how articulatory motor feedback augments and supports phonemic awareness.
  6. Introduction to questioning techniques to promote discovery and problem solving, as the basis of concept formation for students.
  7. Introduction to techniques to stimulate conceptualization and sequencing of phonemes within syllables.
  8. Introduction to techniques to integrate decoding with sight vocabulary, use of context, and comprehension for independence and self-correction in spelling and reading.
  9. Introduction to techniques for developing awareness of syllables within multi-syllable words.
