Aetiological factors, and models and processes explaining speech difference and impairment will be discussed. Pre-literacy skills including phonological awareness and their relationship to both speech and written literacy (reading and spelling) will be discussed. Implications across linguistic and cultural contexts will be considered. Assessment and intervention methods will be explored with respect to current theories and evidence-based practice principles. The effects of speech impairments on activity and participation in educational and community contexts will be explored.
