Speech and Language Bootcamp: What’s the Connection to Literacy?

Presented by:  Jane Heinemeyer, MA, CCC/SLP

The connections between spoken and written language are well established, yet there is much confusion recognizing when a language deficit is present, and understanding the ins-and-outs of language. This presentation will review the basics of speech and language, their relation to literacy, and offer suggestions to help support those with speech and language deficits.

Participants in this presentation will improve their understanding of the parameters of speech and language and the relationship between language and literacy. They will learn signs of language deficits and how to support those with underlying speech and language deficits.
