Dialogic Reading
Early Childhood Education for Children with Disabilities

Dialogic reading was found to have potentially positive effects on communication and language competencies for children with disabilities.

Dialogic Reading is an interactive shared picture book reading practice designed to enhance young children’s language and literacy skills. During the shared reading practice, the adult and the child switch roles so that the child learns to become the storyteller with the assistance of the adult, who functions as an active listener and questioner.
