Literacy Assessment and Therapy

By: Smiling Speech Therapy  05-Aug-2012
Keywords: Literacy, Phonological Awareness, Reading Problems

The preschool years are critical to the development of emergent literacy skills. Phonological awareness, print awareness and oral language are three areas foundational to reading acquisition. Phonological awareness skills are strong predictors of later literacy success. Phonological awareness tasks require children to become aware of the sound units of language, from larger units (words, syllables, rhymes), to smaller units (individual sounds). Please call Donna if you have any concerns about your child's literacy development.
