Course Description

Literacy is an area that many speech-language pathologists feel under-prepared to treat. Despite this, it falls squarely into our scope of practice. This course will outline five key components of early literacy and discuss early literacy skills for preschoolers. It will provide practical ways that foundational skills can be incorporated into speech and language sessions.
