Years of research indicate that robust listening and speaking skills (i.e., oral language) are key factors in reading and writing development (i.e., written language, a.k.a., literacy) (Chang & Monaghan, 2019; National Early Literacy Panel, 2008). Speech-language pathologists’ (SLPs’) strong background in oral language makes them important members of teams that identify and treat early signs of later literacy difficulty. SLP provision of preschool-based oral language therapy in areas, such as oral narrative skills and vocabulary acquisition, within language facilitation models, such as milieu teaching and responsive teaching, can add notably to efforts to bolster pre-literacy and early literacy abilities (Suggate et al., 2018; Walker et al, 2020). Addressing oral language and literacy difficulties early is paramount given that they are the primary vehicles for K-12 academic achievement. During this online chat, the role of the SLP in pre-literacy and early literacy efforts will be discussed.
