- Vocabulary instruction is a cornerstone of reading comprehension (Stahl & Fairbanks, 1986).
- Successful acquisition of vocabulary is critically important to written and oral language development. Some children with specific language impairment (SLI) may need to hear a word twice as many times as their normal language peers before comprehending it (Gray, 2003).
Preschool Vocabulary Cards Actions incorporates these principles and is also based on expert professional practice.
