New DVD on the relationship of early speech-language issues and late literacy

With Ruth Stoeckel, Ph.D., M.A., CCC-SLP, Published by CASANA, 2010.

Children with certain speech and language disorders, such as Childhood Apraxia of Speech, are at high risk for reading, writing and spelling difficulties as they advance through the school years.

"Early Speech Language Issues and Late Literacy: Will Slow to Talk Mean Slow to Read?" relates to children with apraxia or speech sound disorders, and addresses the concerns of SLPs and parents, as well as teachers. It proposes strategies to support early literacy skills in children with communication disorders. Ruth Stoeckel, Ph.D., CCC-SLP of the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, a nationally recognized clinician and speaker on the subject of childhood apraxia of speech and literacy, discusses the connection between speech-language issues and literacy and suggests evidence-based interventions that provide practice for emerging literacy skills.
