Language and reading skills begin a lot sooner than most people realize.

There are “pre-reading” or “pre-literacy” behaviors children must master in order to be able to read and write.

In this "Brains in Toy Land" segment Dr. T reviews the webpages from the American Speech-Language and Hearing Association (ASHA) on Emergent Literacy.

Dr. T also reviews and an article in ParentGuide News by Dr. Elizabeth McCrea, President of ASHA.

Dr. McCrea talks about early language skills that lead to success in reading, academics, and more. Included are skills to look for and activities to do at home to help your little one thrive.
