November 21, 2020 – Coffee Chat #3 – SLP’s Role in Dyslexia



Speech, Language and Dyslexia: Understanding the Relationship between Dyslexia and Communication Disorders

with our very own Heather Caska, M.S., CCC-SLP & Anna Sosa, Ph.D., CCC-SLP

Saturday, November 21st 10:00-11:00 am Via Zoom

Speech language pathologists play a vital role in identifying and supporting children with dyslexia. Many children with dyslexia have speech sound disorders as well as language deficits,  which are often the earliest warning signs that a child may struggle with the development of literacy skills. Understanding how these disorders are related   helps us recognize risk factors,  allowing for early identification of children at risk. We will also chat with Dr. Anna Sosa, Associate Professor at Northern Arizona University about her perspective as both an SLP and a parent of a child with dyslexia.
