Social Communication in Preschoolers and School-Age Children: Assessment and Intervention
1/31/2008
Format(s): Audio CD and Manual, Additional Manual(s)
CEUs: 0.2
2.0
One of the responsibilities of the school-based speech-language pathologist is to address the problem-solving and social communication skills of children with diverse linguistic profiles. Children with language impairment may experience problems in social communication because of specific social cognitive or pragmatic deficits (e.g., misreading of social cues, limited strategies for peer group entry), or as a consequence of peers’ negative perceptions of their language abilities.

Reading and Writing Development in School-Age Children: Current Concepts
Format(s): Journal (Online)
CEUs: 0.65
6.5
Many SLPs are playing an increasing role in addressing literacy skills and often work as part of a team in schools to improve students’ reading and writing. This journal self-study adds to the knowledge base of SLPs working on literacy. Five articles address how literacy progresses over time in both typically developing children and those with speech and language disorders. SLPs who work with school-age children in or outside of schools will come away with an increased understanding of the role of linguistic awareness skills—such as phonological, morphological, and orthographic awareness—on reading and writing development, as well as the importance of vocabulary and overall language development. Each article provides recommendations for clinical practice that SLPs can consider as they continue to expand their literacy instruction.

Assessing Selective Mutism with DIRFloortime
Format(s): eWorkshop
CEUs: 0.2
2.0
Children with selective mutism are frequently difficult to assess because of their lack of verbal expression. Unlike some children on the autism spectrum, children with selective mutism are verbal in comfortable environments. Due to the nature of the disorder, SLPs can find it challenging to identify children with selective mutism as needing in-school support services. This eWorkshop presentation will provide assessment techniques using the DIRFloortime model as a foundation. Participants will learn to assess a child with selective mutism and write a clinical report.

Treating Selective Mutism with DIRFloortime
Format(s): eWorkshop
CEUs: 0.25
2.5
One of the greatest challenges in treating children with Selective Mutism (SM) is the complexity of their profile. This presentation will offer ways to support children with a diagnosis of selective mutism to help them become verbal and solidify any constrictions they may have developmentally. We will show how using the DIRFloortime Model to treat children with SM not only helps them start talking, but also supports their ability to climb the symbolic ladder. Strategies will be addressed to support common struggles that impact families of children with SM such as toileting, sleep, tantrums, and procrastination.

Improve Your Students' Spelling Abilities
Format(s): Audio CD and Manual, Additional Manual(s)
CEUs: 0.2
2.0
One way to improve our clients’ communication is to help them improve their spelling skills. In this program, we’ll use writing samples from students struggling with written language and we’ll examine the potential causes of their spelling difficulties while analyzing common errors (e.g., phonemic, orthographic pattern, and morphological awareness). Following the analysis, we’ll develop goals and then consider and practice sample intervention strategies and activities that address the students’ specific linguistic deficiencies. Throughout the session, we’ll address the rationale for the SLP’s role in assessing and remediating spelling.

Narrative Assessment with Cultural Applications (On Demand Webinar)
Format(s): On Demand Webinar, On Demand Webinar (Group)
CEUs: 0.2
2.0
This session will explore mechanisms for assessing narrative comprehension and production that can be practically implemented in schools, and that can be adapted to the needs of children from different backgrounds and applied to culturally relevant texts and content. Narratives provide a functional context and purpose for addressing and integrating the language components. Therefore, to develop appropriate, effective language interventions, it is essential to adequately assess child narrative skills, ensuring that the assessment is relevant to children from different cultural and linguistic backgrounds. Participants will learn how to view narrative assessments and adapt or select assessments for children with cultural and linguistic differences.

Assessment and Intervention of Communication in Children Birth–5: A Developmental Approach
Format(s): DVD and Manual, Additional Manual(s)
CEUs: 0.35
3.5
Children learn language in the context of spontaneous, social interactions, making language acquisition embedded in the affective, cognitive, and social domains. However, language comprehension is often overlooked. To develop effective assessment and intervention strategies, it is critical for SLPs to understand developmental communication milestones and rely on a child’s non-verbal behaviors, even though the behaviors may not be a reliable predictor in the context of the child’s full developmental profile.

Vocabulary Instruction: Evidence for Five Instructional Strategies
Format(s): Audio CD and Manual, Additional Manual(s)

Many clients need help to develop their vocabularies, but addressing the problem can be daunting. The number of words to be learned—estimated at 60,000 for the average high school graduate—is enormous. Moreover, word learning involves not only linking word forms to meanings, but also enriching those meanings over time and linking words with related meanings.

Word-Finding Assessment in Children and Adolescents: Beyond Picture Naming
Format(s): Audio CD and Manual, Additional Manual(s)
CEUs: 0.2
2.0
Extending our assessment knowledge beyond the picture-naming task, this program focuses on deep assessment in word finding. First, the theoretical underpinnings of word-finding assessment are discussed. Then, formal and informal procedures for the differential diagnosis of semantic versus phonologically based word-finding errors in both single word and discourse contexts are described. Finally, informal word-finding assessment is discussed in the context of classroom discourse and reading activities to guide selection of word-finding accommodations in the classroom (Tier 2 RTI programming). Emphasis is on children aged 4–18.

The Case for the Narrow View of Reading
Format(s): Journal (Online), Journal (Print)
CEUs: 0.4
4.0
The fundamental problem with a broad view of reading is that it conflates two very different abilities—word recognition and comprehension. The narrow view restricts the scope of reading to word recognition, thereby focusing on a skill that can be taught to all students except those with most severe disabiliities. This clinical forum presents a rationale for embracing the narrow view of reading, followed by responses from leading researchers and clinicians.
