One week to go!

Wednesday week, 20 March, we kick off the 7th National Early Literacy Conference with a special 2-hour symposium presented by @Curtin University and @dyslexiaspeld.

Dr Mark Boyes will be discussing new socio-emotional research into the development and impact of language and literacy difficulties in children and adolescents. While DSF will present on some incredible work they have done addressing phonological awareness in local languages.

So register now! It would be great to see you there.

Don’t miss the chance to hear from the Commissioner for Children and Young People WA, Colin Pettit.

The Commissioner will outline the work of his office in consulting with thousands of WA children and young people on issues affecting their wellbeing and how the views of the children themselves should be used to inform and challenge current thinking on factors that influence vulnerability.

Our National Early Literacy Conference is getting closer!

We can’t wait to hear from Julia Orlowski from @CharlesSturtLibraries in SA talk about encouraging children to read, write & create.

Using The Mayoral Make-a-Book Literacy Challenge as a case study, Julia’s workshop will share ideas on how to engage preschool children, families and educators in capturing and publishing their own books to share with others.
