WEBINAR – Supporting Students with Following Instructions
Time – 4:30pm (NSW/ACT/VIC/TAS), 4pm (SA), 3:30pm (QLD), 3pm (NT), 1:30pm (WA)
The ability to listen to and understand spoken instructions is an important skill for student participation in the classroom as well as for students everyday functioning at school and at home. In order to accurately follow spoken instructions, students need to have sufficient skills in a number of different areas including hearing, attention, information processing, language comprehension and memory.
Key learning objectives
Attendees will expect to investigate:
- “Red flags” for difficulties following instructions
- The impact of poor comprehension in the classroom
- Comprehension strategies for speakers and listeners
The session will be recorded. Once you register for this webinar you will receive a link to view the webinar at the designated time. The webinar will be recorded and the link will be emailed to all registered participants along with a Certificate of Attendance.
