Pre-Reading Skills Therapy

Hello there! Welcome to our Pre-Reading Skills Therapy page at Red Deer Speech Therapy. Every child is a born storyteller, and we’re here to give them the tools to become a reader too. Because every great reader starts as a pre-reader.

Pre-reading skills are the foundations upon which reading is built. This can include understanding that print carries meaning, recognizing letters and sounds, developing a rich vocabulary, and having a good listening comprehension. Having strong pre-reading skills can set a child up for success when they start learning to read at school.

Our team of speech-language pathologists are trained in developing these crucial pre-reading skills. We know that every child’s learning journey is unique, and we tailor our therapy to fit each child’s needs and learning style.

Our therapy sessions are packed with fun and engaging activities. We might play sound games, explore books together, draw pictures to tell a story, or sing nursery rhymes. All these activities are designed to nurture a love of language and reading.

But it’s not just about the skills. We also focus on building a child’s confidence and enjoyment in their pre-reading journey. Because we believe that when a child enjoys what they’re doing, they’re more likely to succeed.

And guess what? Parents and caregivers play a starring role in this journey! We provide guidance and resources to support your child’s pre-reading skills at home. This consistent practice can make a significant difference in a child’s reading readiness.

Our Pre-Reading Skills Therapy program at Red Deer Speech Therapy is all about setting the stage for a lifetime love of reading. Because we believe every child has a story to tell, and we’re excited to help them read it!

Whether you’re ready to start your child’s pre-reading journey, or if you’re just looking for some advice, feel free to reach out. We’re here for you, and we can’t wait to be a part of your child’s reading journey!
