Literacy refers to any reading or writing skills. Children with speech and language delays, often have difficulty with literacy skills as well. Children who have difficulty pronouncing or understanding certain speech sounds, may have difficulty with reading and writing those sounds as well. This can lead to trouble decoding and sounding out words. Children with language delays may not fully understand all parts of language, such as grammar, syntax, vocabulary, etc. This can lead to problems understanding text or putting one’s ideas into writing in a logical manner.
