Pre-literate Resources

Pre-literate readers are those who lack basic skills such as knowing the alphabet, being able to distinguish similar letters, knowing letter/sound associations. Those skills, in addition to others, will likely need to be repeatedly covered in a variety of ways; the more connected to their daily life, the more motivated they'll stay.
