Phonological Awareness & Early Literacy
Phonological Awareness is the awareness that language is composed of sounds and the understanding of the relationship of these sounds (words in sentences, syllables, and rhyming).
Speech-language pathologists in educational settings have the responsibility to support education. Research indicates that children with weak phonological awareness skills have weak reading skills; this is an area that requires remediation. By targeting phonological awareness skills in therapy we can help children achieve higher performance levels in their academics.
