Reading and written-language skills require the ability to recognize and identify letter sounds to decode words fluently. This allows energy to be spent on reading comprehension instead of spending energy on constantly sounding out words. The skills required for reading fluently are related to spoken-language skills such as phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics and pragmatics. There are pre-literacy skills that aid fluent reading, including syllable counting, rhyming, and awareness of sounds in words. Written language relies on oral language skills as well, such as story organization, grammatical knowledge, and a strong vocabulary. Difficulties with reading and writing may be evident by the following:

  • Difficulty with completing rhymes or generating rhymes
  • Difficulty identifying the first/last sound in words
  • Difficulty recognizing letters and their corresponding sounds
  • Poor sight-word recognition
  • Poor knowledge of story structures and story components
  • *Our Clinicians are trained in the Orton-Gillingham Based Wilson Reading System
