Ask Abbey & Friends: Word Recognition Toolkit for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Learners: Fingerspelling and Handshapes (American Sign Language Phonemic Awareness—ASL-PA) with Abbey Weaver
Are you looking to increase your Deaf and Hard of Hearing students’ word recognition skills? Reading research highlights the importance of phonological awareness, and more specifically phonemic awareness, as an integral component of successful literacy instruction. Students whose primary language is visual still need access to this set of skills to fully unlock the English code and become proficient readers. Join us for this virtual, three-part interactive series to explore tools and strategies to develop phonological awareness for students.

Participants will:
Define the terms “fingerspelling” and “handshapes” as they relate to American Sign Language;
List three ways fingerspelling and/or handshape instruction can be used to build phonological awareness for Deaf and Hard of Hearing students.

This event will be offered in English with ASL interpreting and live transcription.
