Thank you

This live web event has ended. Thank you for attending.


The START Read strategy, adapted for preschoolers who are deaf and hard of hearing, encompasses multiple reads of the same book to develop Tier 2 vocabulary, promote theory of mind development, nurture critical thinking, and engage in meaningful conversation. Participants will learn the purpose of each read and how to incorporate them into practice.

During this session participants will:

  • Define the START Read strategy and PAT vocabulary strategy.
  • Identify and state the purpose of using three reads within the START strategy.
  • Learn to use “think-alouds” to illustrate thoughts and feelings when reading aloud.
