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.

Important points about dyslexia
Dyslexia is a specific difficulty with literacy and is rooted in a language difficulty. It is possible to have literacy difficulties without dyslexia. Dyslexia affects all forms of communication, spoken and written. People with dyslexia have trouble reading fluently, and may also have difficulties with language and verbal comprehension.
