This course if offered for 0.6 ASHA CEUs
Over 80% of students in the US who are culturally and linguistically diverse read below grade level, and a high percentage of students who are monolingual, English speakers likewise struggle with reading. This “reading” difficulty is often the result of language comprehension factors, and our public schools’ nearly singular focus on decoding-related skills has done little to change this. This seminar will make a strong case for the current, pressing need our public schools have for a greater focus on oral language progress monitoring and multi-tiered systems of language support. This hands-on seminar will provide an overview of and offer specific training on oral language progress monitoring tools and multi-tiered narrative-based language intervention procedures that can be used by a single SLP for his or her caseload, or for an entire school district.
