The Link Between Speech Sound Disorders and Reading/Writing Disorders (PD102367)

Presenter(s): Kelly Farquharson, PhD, CCC-SLP
Course Description

Speech sound disorders (SSDs) exist along a spectrum of severity and abilities, with many involving both the motoric and the phonological system. As a result, many children with SSDs experience related issues with the phonological skills needed for word reading and spelling. This session reviews the Simple Views of Reading and of Writing and connects those theories to assessment practices. The speaker discusses ideas for adapting speech sound intervention activities to include phonological awareness, decoding, and spelling.

This course is a recorded session from the 2021/2022 online conference “Reading, Writing, and the SLP: Preschool to High School.”
