Speech Therapy Literacy Guide

Strong speech and language is imperative for strong literacy skills such as reading and writing. Luckily for you we have a comprehensive speech therapy literacy guide right here. 

Let's review super duper quick what literacy development is all about. To be a strong reader, a child needs strong skills in:

  • Phonology
  • Morphology
  • Syntax
  • Semantics
  • Pragmatics
  • Narrative structure

At this page, we are going to focus on pre-literacy skills, exposure to books, and story grammar.
