Since Covid, the number of children that are qualifying for

speech services has more than doubled.   Young children are

coming to school with huge deficits in their oral language.  If children have deficits in oral language and articulation it can have devastating effects on their phonemic awareness and phonics development.   How can teachers support students who need extra time to develop these skills?  This ONE DAY workshop will address and equip teachers with the following:

  • The components of oral language

  • Articulation and the role it plays in oral language

  • Strategies to support articulation needs

  • Using songs  and shared reading to impact oral language fluency,  articulation and phonemic awareness

  • Immersion Groups: using small group settings to raise quality of language development

Teachers will leave with clear steps and strategies to support young children develop oral language and how to connect it to the phonemic awareness and phonics strands of literacy.




This workshop qualifies for Title 1 funding.​

Make checks payable to Koesel Consulting.

Cancellation Policy:  Substitutions are allowed at any time; however, refunds are not given.

All workshops begin at 8:30 a.m. and conclude at 3:30 p.m.  

Plan to arrive between 8:10 and 8:20 to sign in, pick up materials and find seating.  If you are expecting a large group from your school it is a good idea to come early if sitting together is important to you.  Dress comfortably and you may want to add layers...buildings can be really cold.
