Orthographicmapping is the process that competent readers use to become fluent readers. Through orthographicmapping, students use the oral language processing part of the brain to map - or connect - the sounds of words they already know (the phonemes) to the letters in a word (the spellings). In this webinar, we will explore Linnea Ehri's theory of orthographic mapping and then apply it in practical ways to educational therapy sessions.
