Supporting Emergent Literacy Skills in Early Intervention Therapy Sessions

Emergent literacy skills begin to develop in infancy and provide the foundation for future reading skills and academic success. These skills can be supported in early intervention across disciplines and with a variety of therapy activities. This 1-hour course discusses early literacy skills and their impact on future reading abilities. Activity ideas and practical tips to provide therapists with ways to begin incorporating these skills into their therapy sessions are presented. The presenter suggests ways that therapists and parents can facilitate early literacy skills in play-based activities in the community and at home. Free handouts are also included.
