2011 Award-winning CEC Presentation: A Hands-on Approach for Struggling Readers

Did you miss it? If you didn’t get a chance to go the 2011 CEC Conference in National Harbor, Maryland this year, we’ve got you covered.

Not only did our very own Heidi Hyte, Curriculum Director and ESL Specialist win the Practitioner Presentation Award for the Autism and Developmental Disabilities (DADD) Division, but we have the notes from her extremely popular presentation: A Hands-on Approach for Struggling Readers.

Here is a video of Heidi winning her award:

Heidi reviewed critical decoding strategies with attendees and then offered five entertaining activities to reinforce those skills and improve literacy in the classroom.
