The areas selected as starting points cover the following aspects of literacy:
- listening vocabulary
- phonological awareness
- sound–letter (phoneme–grapheme) relationships
- print and word concepts
- letter formation
- environmental print
- high-interest words.
These areas overlap and work together; they do not represent a hierarchy of skills, and learners may require more support for some aspects than for others.
