'Literacy' refers to reading and spelling skills.
Before children become competent within the areas of reading and spelling, they are expected to acquire a variety of 'pre-reading' and 'pre-spelling' skills as pre-schoolers, up until grade three at school. Having strong 'pre-reading' and 'pre-spelling' skills will reflect a student that is successful at reading and spelling as they continue to grow.
Speech Pathologists as Startright Speech Therapy assess these prerequisite skills to ensure they are developing alongside their overall reading and spelling.
Literacy programs are tailored to each individual student and their different areas of need, whether it be focusing on pre-literacy or on direct spelling / reading skills.
