Literacy service from Vocalsaints

Literacy is the written form of communication which involves reading (decoding) and writing (encoding). If there are any delays or difficulties with spoken language and/or sound production then are likely to be delays or difficulties with literacy development. There are a number of skills required to be able to ‘read fluently’ and ‘write with ease’. Speech-language therapy can help determine where someone is struggling with their literacy and develop their skills to make the necessary improvements.

The important link – and best predictor of literacy success – is found in phonological awareness skills. By using these skills, children are able to ‘sound out’ and write down the sounds they hear into their corresponding written letter format.

    What people say about us

    Mother of an 8 year old girl "We are kept well informed of what we can build on at each stage of the journey, but there is also no pressure or guilt when life is busy.

    We found the zoom meetings really beneficial when travel hasn't been easy to arrange and now are continuing via distance thanks to how well that has worked.  Many thanks to Vocalsaints and Ashleigh for the amazing work you do!"
