The National Early Literacy Panel (2008) identified a number of factors that predict later reading ability in preschool children, including alphabet knowledge, phonological processing skills (e.g., phonological awareness, phonological memory), concepts of print, and oral language skills. Recent research (Snowling et al., 2016) underscored the importance of assessing phonological processing skills early when language impairment is suspected given the implications for later oral language and literacy development. Phonological processing skills, the factors that connect oral language and literacy (Kovelman et al., 2012), underlie communication skills addressed on speech-language pathology screening and assessment protocols. Phonological processing skills and other related assessment areas (e.g., alphabet knowledge, concepts of print, oral language) for detecting early literacy disorder as well as the role of the SLP in the assessment process will be discussed during this online chat.
