Speech-sound development is one of the foundations to reading acquisition.  Children and students also need to be able to independently read words they come across, and find meaning in those words when strung into a sentence. 

The Impact of Speech-Sound Disorders on Reading

Speech-sound development is one of the foundations to reading acquisition. As a result, children with speech-sound disorders are at a much higher risk for having/developing problems with reading skills.

We will discuss what parents can do to help their child develop speech sounds and foster a love of reading even before learning to read. We will also provide tips on how to help the older child with reading, typical vs. atypical speech patterns, and how to decide when to seek help from a professional.

Helping Students Develop Appropriate Reading and Spelling Strategies Early On

Children and students need to be able to independently read words they come across, and find meaning in those words when strung into a sentence. It is challenging for children to find meaning when they are simply trying to figure out HOW to read the words on the page. Learn about phonological awareness and why is its mastery prior to reading and spelling is encouraged.

We will discuss how children transition from hearing and vocalizing sounds to blending and segmenting sounds in words to read and spell. We will also provide tips to help your child or student make progress in their reading development.

Featuring Sara Martin of Speech with Sara and Angelina Spiteri-Bender of Brainspring Learning Centers.
