Early literacy skills are a strong predictor of future academic success. Early literacy involves everything children should know about reading and writing before the child can actually read or write. Literacy skills begin developing in the first 5 years of life with a toddler holding a book to wanting a favorite book read over and over to becoming a kindergartner who loves to “read” a story to you from memory. Young children entering school with specific early literacy skills have the greatest opportunity to become successful readers and writers.
Early literacy skills include:
Children that have difficulty with phonological awareness have trouble learning to read. Phonological awareness includes rhyming, alliteration, phoneme isolation, sound blending, syllable identification and sound segmentation.

In the real world, speech language pathologists, occupational therapists and physical therapists have to collaborate, thus, having all of these disciplines under one roof, before the students get into real world situations, is truly an advancement for the programs.
Brigette Culliver, M.A., CCC-SLP, Speech and Hearing Clinic Administrator divulged that there will be 10 therapy rooms, a large collaboration room for group therapy, a sensory room, and a voice and swallowing lab. Staff and future students are excited about the upcoming changes.
