LSL by the Season: Fall Reading for Early Literacy

Reading aloud every day helps children with hearing loss build literacy skills. Our “fall” books will help you develop specific concepts, skills and activities for incorporating Listening and Spoken Language strategies into your reading time.

Fall is an exciting season. Everyone’s energy is high as we move away from the long, hot days of summer. Kids are back in school, the air is getting more crisp and your little ones are counting down the days to Halloween or Fall festivals. Fall is also a perfect time to help your child take extra steps on their road to literacy. Reading aloud with your child who is deaf or hard of hearing establishes the foundation for a love of reading and helps develop their early language skills.

Remember: You don’t have to be a reading teacher to teach your child literacy skills. Reading aloud is simple, and it’s one of the most important activities that you can do with your child to get them ready for reading and learning. In fact, just 15 minutes a day of reading aloud can make a big difference! When you make reading together a daily habit with your family, you're preparing your child for school success. Make time for reading aloud every day and your child will gain important LSL and literacy skills that will help them be successful in school and in life.
