3 What is Project CENTRAL? Coordinating g Existing g Networks To Reach All Learners The ultimate goals are to provide professional development activities, products, and other resources to ensure quality outcomes for all students in Florida including students t with disabilities. A Project of the Florida Department of Education In Collaboration with University of Central Florida
4 Just Read, Florida! Outcomes What is LRC? What can SLPs do to support reading achievement? How can SLPs and school based persons collaborate to increase reading achievement? How can Administrators maximize the impact of their Speech-Language Pathologist to increase student achievement?

8 Does reading fit within the SLPs scope of practice? Reading is a language skill. Reading disabilities are language g based disabilities. ASHA scope of practices covers reading as does the current draft of ASHA s Ad Hoc Committee on Reading and Writing Language Disorders.
9 SLPs Background Knowledgeable in language, phonology and cognition Can apply this knowledge to provide targeted support to students who are struggling in reading CAUTION: Their role is not to replace the teacher but to provide focused support as part of a literacy team
10 Intervention Increasing vocabulary should be a primary focus of intervention to improve comprehension. Comprehension monitoring predicting, questioning, clarification, and summarization
11 The Language Reading Connection
12 The Many Strands that are Woven into Skilled Reading (Scarborough, 2001) LANGUAGE COMPREHENSION BACKGROUND KNOWLEDGE VOCABULARY KNOWLEDGE LANGUAGE STRUCTURES VERBAL REASONING LITERACY KNOWLEDGE Skilled Readingfluent coordination of word reading and comprehension SKILLED READING: fluent execution and coordination of word recognition processes and text comprehension. WORD RECOGNITION PHON. AWARENESS DECODING (and SPELLING) SIGHT RECOGNITION Reading is a multifaceted skill, gradually acquired over years of instruction and practice.
13 Language Impairments and Reading Disabilities Although language deficits often are causally linked to reading problems, reading difficulties can also contribute to language problems. Many poor readers have widespread deficiencies in basic language g abilities.
14 Background & Rationale-Research Research guiding these efforts SLPs support vocabulary development by explicitly itl teaching specific words and concepts, teaching strategies to learn new words independently, providing multiple exposures to words, and encouraging g reading. (Honig, Diamond, & Gutlohn, 2000) SLPs give students the tools they need to make sense of what they read. (Honig, Diamond, & Gutlohn, 2000)
15 What Does the Research Say? What Do We Know about Reading, Language, and our Students?
16 In 1995, the U.S. Department of Education and the National Institutes of Health National Academy of Sciences Report from the National Research Council 1998
17 In 1997, United States Congress National Institute of Child Health and Human Development & U.S. Department of Education Report of the National Reading Panel, 2000
18 Reading Research According to the Report of the National Reading Panel, effective reading instruction for all students includes explicit, systematic instruction in phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary and comprehension. (NRP, 2000)
19 Language/Reading Research The best evidence for a causal basis of reading disabilities comes from studies of language difficulties in poor readers. This issue also currently has the most direct implications for educational/clinical interventions (Catts & Hogan, 2003)
20 Oral to Literate Connection The oral language that children bring to the reading process profoundly affects reading. Many students come to the reading process without the proper foundation, preparation, and experience with language and literacy.
21 Reading is Extension of Oral Language g Dynamic and reciprocal relationship between spoken and written language (Kamhi & Catts (1989) Development of each skill provides scaffold or support for the other. Young children use their oral language g to learn to read, older children use reading to learn language (Westby, 1989).
22 Spoken and Written Language Therefore, learning to read involves a continuum of skills and is seen as a developmental process in which listening, speaking, reading, and writing are integrated and is the pathway to literacy. (Silliman & Wilkinson, 1994, p. 27). The strength of these skills is the foundation for reading and writing.
23 Background & Rationale: Content Links between Language and Reading Phonology Morphology Syntax Semantics Pragmatics Phonemic Awareness Phonics Fluency Vocabulary Development Comprehension
24 Components of Language Forms of Language Phonology: Rules and patterns by which the phonemes (speech sounds) are combined into words and phrases Morphology: Smallest meaningful units of language that modify word structures in order to change the meaning of the word Syntax: A rule system that governs how words are combined into larger meaningful units of phrases, clauses, and sentences
25 Components of Language, cont. Content of Language Semantics: Encompasses the ability to distinguish word meanings, including multiple meanings and subtle nuances, and relationships between words Use of Language Pragmatics: The ability to use languag in specific contexts and for the specific purposes
26 Reading Research Based on NICHD research, the most useful interventions for those identified with reading disabilities include a combination of explicit and direct instruction in: phonemic awareness, sound-symbol relationships (phonics), contextual reading (fluency/vocabulary) reading comprehension skills.
27 Reflection Given the relationship described between the development of language and reading skills, SLP s can collaborate with reading coaches and teachers to increase reading achievement
28 Instruction of Students with Specific Comprehension Problems The fact that language deficits are both a cause and a consequence of reading disabilities ensures that language problems will be a major component of almost all cases of reading disabilities. Catts & Kamhi, 1999
29 Instruction of Students with Specific Comprehension Problems Remediation for children with language-learning disabilities (or those at risk for these difficulties) will need to focus on language comprehension as well as word recognition (Catts & Hogan, 2003). The aspect of comprehension that has had the greatest attention over years has been vocabulary. Research has shown that vocabulary instruction can be effective, especially if strategies are taught that allow children to become independent word learners (Baker, Simmons, & Kameenui, 1998). Language interventions for poor readers has also g g p focused on grammatical understanding and textlevel processing. (Baker, Simmons, & Kameenui, 1998).
30 Thoughtful Decisions By considering children s strengths and weaknesses in word recognition and language comprehension, educators may be better able to describe reading problems, plan interventions, and monitor progress. ~Adapted from Aaron, 1991
31 Now is the TIME to Really Make a Difference in Literacy SLPs knowledge and skills will give a broader picture and an enhanced perspective to school literacy teams.
32 SLPs are Making a Difference Supporting classroom teachers and specialists by modeling and assisting with implementation of strategies and best practices that will impact classroom performance of at-risk learners. Providing information and participating in the school literacy teams. When needed, providing assessment and treatment services to children with speech-language disorders d that t result in improved classroom performance.
33 Leadership How can Administrators maximize the impact of their Speech-Language g Pathologist to increase student achievement?
34 Administrative Action Time Caseload Knowledge about Reading and Curriculum u Clustering Language g Impaired students Ensure that your SLP participates in the free LRC training.
35 90 Minute Reading Block Yes! The SLP may provide services in accordance with the IEP in the classroom setting for the entire (or a portion of) the 90 Minute Reading Block. (FL DOE TAP #FY
36 SLP School Involvement Provide services in the general education class during the 90 min. reading block. Attend grade level And Literacy Team meetings.

37 What does LRC accomplish? A two day researched based professional development for SLPs to teach the connection between language and reading. LRC instructs and supplies resources to the SLP to provide language interventions that support reading achievement of students in the areas of vocabulary and reading comprehension.
38 LRC Learner Outcomes Gain knowledge of the language reading connection Gain knowledge of how to support students with reading deficits as a result of language needs Gain knowledge of the role of the speech- language pathologists and how they can serve as a language reading resource for teachers and other professionals Gain knowledge on how to lead and support collaborative practices between SLPs and teachers
