Abstract

The home literacy environment (HLE) is important for stimulating children’s emergentliteracy skills. One important emergent literacy skill that children learn through their home environment is print knowledge—knowledge about book and print organisation, print meaning, letters and words (Sawyer et al., 2014). Print knowledge is important because ofits relationship to later literacy ability. Pre-schoolers with speech sound disorder (SSD) areat risk of later literacy difficulties.
