  1. Individualized Support: By pinpointing specific areas of need, educators can provide targeted support tailored to each student's requirements. 

  1. Improved Academic Performance: Enhanced communication skills contribute to improved academic performance, as students can effectively express themselves and comprehend instructional materials.

With this, educators can identify areas of strength and areas needing improvement, allowing for targeted interventions and support. Educators can help preschoolers build the necessary skills for successful communication and interaction in future social environments through consistent monitoring and targeted interventions.
