Dr. Conca will soon be offering Structured Word Inquiry to help clients with reading and spelling!!!!
“Structured word inquiry” Bowers and Kirby (2010) literacy instruction engages learners of all ages and abilities by making sense of our surprisingly logical spelling system. English spelling can only be understood through scientific investigation of the interrelationship of morphology (bases & affixes), etymology (historical influences) and phonology (grapheme-phoneme correspondences).
