Language Development and Literacy
Research shows that when adults create rich language and literacy environments, and respond to a child’s communication in specific ways, they can boost that child’s emergent language and literacy development, and increase the likelihood of future academic success. Learners with vision loss, and those who are deaf or hard of hearing, experience unique challenges with language development and literacy. This section of the website is designed to provide resources to increase success.
