This is Part 2 of a two-part series on language and literacy that will help SLPs recognize that the tasks they are already doing support literacy, and learn how to work with teams through an interdisciplinary approach and how to develop word knowledge for reading and spelling. Part 2 will include information on phonemic awareness, phonological awareness, morphological awareness, phonics, sight words, and semantics as they relate to literacy and the development of word knowledge. For each area we will talk about developmental expectations, activities, and how to lead the school team in looking at student writing as a window into areas in need of targeted intervention.
