    Abstract

    Pre-literacy skills are cruical for literacy development, which is basic for gaining knowledge, looking informations … In those days, we are facing with reading and writing on every step. We could say, that literacy is a life important skill. Pre-literacy skills include various skills: phonological awareness, graphic awareness, concept of print, auditory memory, phonological memory, rapid automatized naming and other. Children develop these skills in preschool period and in first grade of primary school. Children with speech and language disorders often have problems with pre-literacy skills and this affects on frequency of occurrence of specific difficulties in reading and writing in children with speech and language disorders. In practical part we want to investigate the pre-literacy skills (concept of print, grafical awareness, phonological awareness, auditory memory, phonological memory and rapid automatized naming) of a girl with moderate speech and language disorder. In the school year 2016/2017 she attends first grade of primary school. Based on these findings we prepared and verified progress and success of individualized speech therapy program. We implemented speech therapy program from december 2016 to april 2017. Findings showed progress from first to last testing in every tested skill: concept of print, grafical awareness, phonological awareness, auditory memory, phonological memory and rapid automatized naming. At first testing the girl showed best results at grafical awareness and worst results at phonological memory. The girl most improved at phonological memory and least at grafical awareness. We can conclude that the girl improved her pre-literacy skills with help of individualized speech therapy program, which is important in speech therapy.
