Speech therapy grammar activities round-up to download and use now!
Grammar is one of the many areas SLPs address in speech therapy. It is critical to communication and academic success – speaking, comprehension, reading, writing, and more.
Did you know that students with specific language impairment and developmental language disorder have persistent grammatical deficits? And that poor syntactic structure is one of the main reasons for comprehension difficulties?
When it comes to language development and comprehension, one of the biggest culprits behind comprehension difficulties is poor syntactic structure.(Scott & Balthazar, 2010)
Grammar is an important area to work on that impacts other skills – and it encompasses A LOT of skills. Our goal is to help our students obtain a greater grasp of morphology and syntax to help them in meaningful communication whether that is in conversation, narration, or writing skills.
