Speech Sound Disorders: Impact on Language and Literacy
This course includes two recorded sessions from the 2016 online conference “Improving Intelligibility in Children With Speech Sound Disorders.” These sessions focus on the role of phonological representations, vocabulary, and working memory in assessment of children with speech sound disorders, as well as the importance of evidence-based phonological awareness intervention to enhance literacy success.
The two sessions in this course are:
- There is More to the Story: Language, Literacy, and Cognitive Skills of Children With Early, Persistent, and Remediated Speech Sound Disorders, by Kelly Farquharson
- Enhancing Early Literacy Development in Children With Unintelligible Speech, by Gail Gillon
You will be able to:
- implement early screenings of children with speech sound disorders
- plan and implement appropriate phonological awareness activities for young children with speech difficulties to maximize their opportunity to experience literacy success
