Aims of this Discussion
- To give information about the typical progress of early literacy development, in a sense what is ‘normal’, and what you can do to help your child.
- Understanding ‘typical’ development and the home activities which go along with it is the first step in ensuring your child’s long term literacy future.
- To detail how parents and teachers perceived individual children as they progressed through early literacy and when these two perceptions may differ.
- To touch on features which may predict a child could have difficulties in gaining early literacy.
