Children with spoken language disorders often experience difficulties with reading as well. SLPs – particularly those working in school-based settings – have a responsibility to prevent, assess, and treat reading impairments. In this video course, presenter Kelly Farquharson will discuss how SLPs can approach this important clinical need from a robust and empirically supported theoretical framework, the Simple View of Reading.

  • Explain the Simple View of Reading as it relates to children with spoken language disorders
