John De Mado

Do you wonder about the causes of Restricted Language Ability (RLA)? How social and technological factors may contribute to the difficulty young learners have with acquiring language skills? There are existing methods to contribute to student comprehension of language and strengthen general content literacy. Join John De Mado to learn what strategies educators can employ to create a properly developed, language-rich curriculum. Drawing from the research of Drs. Carolyn Brown and Jerry Zimmerman of the University of Iowa, explore with John how the human mind acquires language and develops literacy.
