The Impact of Speech-Sound Disorders on Reading

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

with Sara Martin of Speech with Sara, LLC. Speech-sound development is one of the foundations to reading acquisition. As a result, children with speech-sound disorders are at a much higher risk for having/developing problems with reading skills. Sound development happens over a longer period of time beginning when babies are cooing and babbling then continuing into preschool years. Children who are delayed in their sound development and/or their ability to be well understood by others are more likely to encounter struggles during literacy acquisition.
