What is it about?

Reading and writing are language-based skills, and effective literacy instruction/intervention practices should include an explicit linguistic focus. An intensive 2-week clinical summer camp, Camp CHRONICLE, which utilizes a multilinguistic structured literacy intervention model that integrates morphological awareness for adolescents with literacy deficits, is reviewed, and three case examples are included.

Why is it important?

Improving morphological awareness has been proven to be beneficial in improving the literacy skills of students with language-based literacy deficits. Additionally, morphological awareness can be readily integrated with other language-based literacy skills, making it an excellent cornerstone for intervention.

Perspectives

I was really excited to write this article because I have heard so many school-based SLPs say that they are not really sure where to begin when intervening with adolescents who continue to struggle to develop literacy skills- I hope this article provides some guidance.
