Speech/Language Therapists and Parents Building Confident Readers
Remember the old saying, “Children should be seen and not heard?” Research tells us that for children to become readers, they should listen and talk a lot. Literacy cannot be built without a strong language foundation.
Speech/Language pathologists are the “language experts” and you are your child’s first and most important teacher. Asheville Speech Associates presents an opportunity for parents and therapists to work together to ensure your child’s love of reading by:
- Building spoken language by talking and listening
- Learning how to associate spoken language with print
- Learning about the sounds of spoken language (this is called phonological awareness)
- Teaching parents about “guided” reading
Full reading assessments are avilable for your child. These are very thorough tests that cannot be billed to insurance companies. Discover exactly what is the barrier to your child's reading success.
