Language Support Groups
Is your child finding reading and spelling tricky? Are their oral language and storytelling skills delayed?
Children with speech and language difficulties or disorders are at greater risk of experiencing language and literacy difficulties as they enter formal schooling. This is thought to be the case as both speech and language development, and literacy development rely on some of the same cognitive processes.
Telethon Speech & Hearing’s Language Support Program is a structured and systematic program that supports early literacy development.
The intensive program adopts a synthetic phonics based approach to teaching reading and spelling and also focuses on the continued development of oral skills and written language.
Two hour weekly sessions target:
- Phonological and phonemic awareness skills
- Explicit teaching of the alphabetic code
- Spelling at word and text level
- Reading at word and text level
- Polysyllabic words (reading and spelling longer words)
- Oral language development
- Written language development
- Story structure
