Phonological Processing

Phonological processing refers to a range of phonological (sound) abilities which can be integral within many speech, language and literacy disorders. These include abilities such as being able to accurately represent, discriminate between, memorise, segment, blend and manipulate sounds.

When your child is assessed for speech and language conditions at ESTC indications of phonological processing difficulties will be taken into account, and as a result relevant activities may be included within your child personalised speech therapy plan.  Attention in this area can have an observable positive effect on both your child’s speech and literacy abilities.
