The role of the speech-language pathologist in identifying and treating children with dyslexia has expanded significantly over the years. In 2001, ASHA stated that the scope and practice for SLPs includes literacy assessment and intervention for children and adolescents. Furthermore, ASHA states, "The reciprocal and multiple relationships between spoken and written language make it appropriate for SLPs to play an integral role in helping children become literate."
In order for SLPs to play an integral role in identifying and treating children with dyslexia, SLPs must have extensive knowledge and understanding of the nature of the disability. They must also be able to identify the core language skills that correlate with dyslexia and understand the process of reading development.
