    It’s an awesome webinar – full of great information for anyone working with emergent literacy learners.

  • Thanks so much for telling us about Literary Skills. This is invaluable information that we can all pass on to others. Very important post.

      You’re more than welcome. It’s something we want all SLPs to consider targetting for their clients who use AAC. Providing AAC learners with lots of high quality intervention on reading and writing is something that many of us didn’t learn about in our training programs. As our knowledge and evidence base grows our services should reflect the that new information but it can be hard for practicing clinicians to keep up with all of the changes. Thanks for taking the time to comment, Laurie!
