Literacy
A five-year, seven-month old female was referred for speech and language therapy in November 2011 due to difficulty blending sounds into words, recognizing "snap” words at school, and reading.

The patient displayed poor phonological awareness, vocabulary, grammar, and reading and writing.

Treatment: Shared Reading activities were included in instruction along with structured reading and writing tasks with emphasis on linking words to background knowledge and memorable experiences within the clinic setting.

Progress: After 6 months, she was able to read all age appropriate material provided without assistance. Her mother indicated per teacher’s report that she moved to the highest reading level within the class. She also made "A’s” on reading and spelling tests by the end of the school year.
