This seminal text provides a scholarly overview of current evidence-based approaches to emergent literacy intervention as a component of clinical practice in speech-language pathology. The book's focus is primarily the emergent literacy period of development, transcending toddlerhood to the kindergarten year and corresponding to the years preceding formal literacy and reading instruction. By providing an accessible and usable integration of theory and research, it encourages readers to think about building early foundations in literacy to promote healthy early development and to ease children's transitions to later academic contexts. The book answers the question, "what can speech-language pathologists do today to include literacy as a target in childhood intervention?"
