Robust vocabulary resources for speech pathologists, teachers and parents

Expand a child’s vocabulary by combining direct teaching with children’s books.

A child’s vocabulary size is a strong predictor of their ability to understand and express ideas and is correlated to later reading comprehension. There is much information available on the importance of having a “good vocabulary” and how many words children are expected to understand and to use as they progress through different ages and stages.

Children who have a “good vocabulary” are generally successful and confident communicators. However, for a myriad of reasons, some children are at-risk of or have a reduced vocabulary, and the gap between them and their same-aged peers often widen over time. There is therefore a need for direct vocabulary teaching, which can be accomplished via robust vocabulary intervention.
