Twenty-four elementary and special education teachers from the Hattiesburg Public School District spent the week of Oct. 10-14 learning the DuBard Association Method® at the DuBard School for Language Disorders at The University of Southern Mississippi.

“We hope to give these teachers another tool to use in their classrooms that will improve reading and writing development for their students,” said DuBard Assistant Director and course instructor Daphne Cornett. “The multisensory teaching strategy can benefit students with various learning disabilities.”

A United Way agency, the DuBard School for Language Disorders was established in 1962 and is a clinical division of the Southern Miss Department of Speech and Hearing Sciences. The school serves children with severe language/speech disorders and/or hearing impairments and provides guidance and counseling for parents and families of the children. The school is a practicum site for university students majoring in speech-language pathology, audiology, or deaf education.
