Literacy is a complex competency that also involves reading to learn. learn. Learning to Read Ages one through five are important for learning to read. read. Important Language Processes Phonological awareness Rapid automatic naming Phonological memory Letter identification Invented spelling Single word decoding Oral fluency Cause and effect Passage comprehension Story mapping Reflection Self Correction Hierarchical Definitions Figurative language Retell Prediction Learning to Read Children with language impairments are four to five times more likely than typically developing children to have reading problems during their school years. 6 Vocabulary Development The two strongest predictors of reading achievement are: Vocabulary Knowledge and Phonemic Awareness Reading to Learn Nine year old children learn 3,000 to 5,000 new words per year. Most of that new vocabulary comes from reading. Reading to Learn Important Language Processes Derivational morphology Text structures Purposes of texts Different styles of reading Text organization Context cues for comprehension Storage and retrieval Written fluency Vocabulary Executive functions Figurative language Inferences Synonyms, antonyms, homonyms, homophones Fourth grade and beyond is when children and adolescents use reading to expand their learning. Old School/New School Listening Speaking Reading Writing Spoken & written language have a reciprocal relationship, such that each builds on the other to result in general language and literacy competence. Big Message A language delay may influence a literacy delay at any age or at any level of development. 7 Stages of Literacy Preschool Listens to stories; can re-tell; reads pictures; recognizes printed rename; knows some letters Reads 50-100 sight words; uses alphabetic principle; decodes 1 50& 2 syllable words; finds environmental print Reads over 100 words per minutes; comprehends written text; reads to learn; decodes unknown words using structural analysis Gains most new information from reading; recognizes novel content; reads 180 words per minute; writes to express self & develop insights and own ideas Components of Language 2nd Grade 5th Grade Secondary Level USE Social Aspects Life Experiences Influence Development of Social Language 3 years 4 years 5 years 6 years 9 years Egocentric; dramatizes; asks questions Commands; requests; asks why; shares; engages in turn-taking turnEngages in responsive discourse showing reciprocity Asks for explanations Uses language to express subtle and refined emotions 3. 1.

Lead poisoning can cause learning disabilities, behavioral problems, and, at very high levels, seizures, coma, and even death. Lead-based paints were banned for use in housing in Lead1978. However, approximately 24 million housing units in the United States have deteriorated leaded paint and elevated levels of lead-contaminated house dust. More leadthan 4 million of these dwellings are homes to one or more young children. Lead Poisoning (Continued) Other sources of lead poisoning are related to: hobbies (making stained-glass windows); work (recycling or making automobile stainedbatteries); drinking water (lead pipes, solder, brass fixtures, valves can all leach lead); home health remedies (azarcon and greta, which are used for upset stomach or indigestion; pay-loo-ah, pay- loowhich is used for rash or fever). Children from all social and economic levels can be affected by lead poisoning, although children living at or below the poverty line who live in older housing are at greatest risk. Children of some racial and ethnic groups and those living in older housing are disproportionately affected by lead. For example, 3% of African American children compared to 1.3% of Caucasian children have elevated blood lead levels. (CDC, 2008) 9 Chronic Otitus Media Autism Spectrum Disorders Prevalence is controversial and ranges between 5.2 to 7.6 per 1,000 live births. CDC (2007) documents the prevalence as 1 in 150 eight year olds. Deaf and Hard of Hearing The number of Americans with hearing loss has nearly doubled in the last 30 years. 1 to 6 per 1,000 live births. 391,000 school-age children have unilateral loss. school14.9% of school-age children have either low schoolfrequency or high frequency loss. Profound, early-onset deafness is present in 4 to early11 per 10,000 children and is attributable to genetic causes in at least 50% of the cases. (ASHA, 2008) Environmental Deprivation 39% of children in the United States live in poverty (29 million). The poverty rate for young children is higher than for older children 43% of children below the age of six live in poverty 37% of children over the age of six live in poverty (NCCP, 2008) Pre-Natal Drug Exposure A survey conducted by the National Institute on Drug Abuse conducted in 1992 indicated that more than 5% of all newborn children had been exposed to illicit drugs before birth. "Generally, most studies of physical and neurobehavioral outcomes in newborn infants have shown that prenatal exposure to marijuana, cocaine, and/or opiates increases the risk that exposed infants will be born prematurely, weigh less, have smaller heads, and be shorter than unexposed infants. However, assessing the full consequences of prenatal drug exposure for these children as they get older is a more complex task. The timing and amount of prenatal exposure, the mother's abuse of multiple drugs, poverty, poor nutrition, and inadequate prenatal and postnatal care are just some of the factors that can cloud the the effects of prenatal maternal drug abuse on infants and children." children." (NIDA, 2008) Learning Disabilities 6 to 10% of all school-aged children exhibit some schoolform of learning disability Dyslexia difficulty with reading Dyscalculia difficulty with math operations, measurement, and/or numbers Dysgraphia difficulty with writing Co-occurrence of Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity CoDisorders 10 Genetic Syndromes Anomaly deviation from normal structure, form, or function. Syndrome presence of multiple anomalies in the same individual with all of those anomalies having a single cause. There are approximately 450 different syndromes (including subtypes) that co-occur with speech, colanguage, and/or hearing delays and disorders. Prevalence varies among these syndromes. (Schpintzen, 1997) Cognitive Delays or Disorders Approximately 3% of the total population have cognitive challenges challenges demonstrating Intelligence Quotients below 70 (100 is considered as average). Mild: IQ of 55-69. About 85% of children with cognitive challenges are in Mild: 55this range. These children may be able to learn to read and write at the 4th or range 4th 5th grade level; live relatively independently; and work with special training. special Moderate: IQ of 40-54. 10% of children with cognitive challenges are in this Moderate: 40group. These children may have academic potential at the kindergarten or 1st kindergarten grade level; may have limited ability to read, and will usually need some support and supervision in daily living activities (like with a supportive family or supervised group home) and work (with special training). Severe: IQ of 25-39. 5% of children with cognitive challenges are in this Severe: 25group. Children at this level are unlikely to be able to learn to read or write. to They usually require total supervision and support for daily living activities. living Profound: IQ of < 24. <1% of children with cognitive challenges are in this : Profound this group. (Keep Kids Healthy, 2008) Traumatic Brain Injury Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is defined within the IDEA as an acquired injury to the brain caused by an external physical force, force, resulting in total or partial functional disability or psychosocial psychosocial impairment, or both, that adversely affects a child's educational educational performance. The term applies to open and closed head injuries resulting in impairments in one or more areas, such as cognition; cognition; language; memory; attention; reasoning; abstract thinking; judgment; problem-solving; sensory, perceptual, and motor problemabilities; psychosocial behavior; physical functions; information information processing; and speech. The term does not apply to brain injuries injuries that are congenital or degenerative, or brain injuries induced by by birth trauma. [(Code of Federal Regulations, Title 34, Section 300.7(b)(12)] Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) TBI is the leading cause of death and disability in children and adolescents in the United States. The most frequent causes of TBI are related to motor vehicle crashes, falls, sports, and abuse/assault. More than one million children sustain head injuries annually; approximately 165,000 require hospitalization. However, many students with mild brain injury may never see a health care professional at the time of the accident. Cerebral Vascular Accident Hemorrhagic Stroke Bleeding on the brain. Average annual incidence rate in children of 1.89/100,000/year Ischemic Stroke - Artery to the brain is blocked. Prevalence among children = 0.63/100,000/year Overall average annual incidence rate for children through fourteen years of age is 2.52/100,000/year. (NINDS, 2008) Examples of Evidence-Based Practices That Remediate and/or Facilitate Language Development 11 5 Evidence-Based Practices Indirect Language Stimulation/ Expansions The SLP reformulates what the child said into an expanded, grammatically complete sentence ( e.g., Child: "Dat a truck."; SLP: "That's a big truck with black wheels.") truck." That' wheels." Focused Language Stimulation - The SLP manipulates the environment to evoke the child's spontaneous production of a specific linguistic target using child' strategies such as false assertions, feigned misunderstandings, forced choices, violation of routines, etc. Facilitative Play Approach The SLP models target language forms and functions using self-talk and/or parallel talk during client-centered activities in selfclientauthentic settings. The child's interest is maintained by using high-interest, child' highdevelopmentally appropriate activities. 5 Evidence-Based Practices Model-Imitation/ Modeling Plus Evoked Production The SLP provides a Modelmodel of the target and the child imitates it. Specific verbal praise and/or praise corrective feedback are provided. Edible, tangible, social, and/or natural and/or reinforcements may or may not be provided. Parent-Directed The SLP models specific techniques while Parentinteracting with the child; the parent observes; parent's questions parent' are answered; then the SLP observes the parent use the techniques while the SLP observes; the SLP provides specific positive and/or corrective feedback to the parent; a home carryover program is established.
