Description: Although educators, including speech-language pathologists and dyslexia specialists, are knowledgeable of the many foundational skills needed for reading and spelling, such as phonology, morphology, and semantics, there remains a significant need to improve literacy instruction and outcomes. Educators who have not been taught how the English orthographic (i.e., writing) system works may experience difficulty explaining why words are spelled the way they are, and the meaning and spelling connections between words from the same morphological family. Additionally, many literacy programs focus on simple, decodable words in early stages of the program; however, students also need exposure to more academic vocabulary, as well as an understanding of how to read and spell these morphologically-complex words.
