Literacy Skills in Children
According to the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, research indicates that “17-20% of our nation’s children experience substantial difficulties in learning to read…making early identification and intervention of reading problems essential to a child’s success in both school and society”.

Preschool children with speech and language disorders are considered at-risk for problems with learning to read and to write. Our trained professionals have the knowledge and experience to identify and treat language, speech, and emergent literacy skills which serve as the foundation for later reading and writing development.
