Building Emergent Literacy Skills in Speech and Language Therapy - 014687
Young children with speech and language disorders face heightened risks for lags in literacy development; therefore, it is crucial for speech-language pathologists to know how emergent literacy develops and how we can support our youngest learners in becoming skilled readers. This interactive session outlines the simple view of reading and provides you with essential targets (precursor skills), materials (books/ activities), and procedures (EBPs) that you can easily incorporate into therapy sessions to support "reading" with your youngest students. Each participant will walk away with a print-rich book and interactive materials to immediately use with students!
