Intended audience: Speech-Language Pathologists, Audiologists, Students


This session pertains to: Pre-school aged children (0-5) and school-aged children (6-17)


Level: Intermediate (Assumes general familiarity with the literature and professional practice within the areas covered.)



The increasing number of children today who experience poverty and homelessness makes it imperative that school personnel meet their unique needs. Many times, these students display decreased language and executive functioning skills that are related to their low socioeconomic status (SES). They may have potential or actual language impairments. This webinar describes factors that impact these low-SES students, and details practical intervention strategies for increasing their oral and literate language as well as their executive functioning skills.


Learning Outcomes:


At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:


  1. List general factors that impact the linguistic and academic achievement of students in poverty and homelessness.
  2. Explain the effects of poverty on low-income and homeless students’ oral and literate language development.
  3. Compare and contrast situational and generational poverty.
  4. Describe specific practical strategies for increasing the oral language skills of students in poverty and conditions of homelessness.
  5. Discuss specific practical strategies for increasing the written language skills of students in poverty and homelessness.
  6. Describe possible executive functioning deficits in students in poverty and homelessness and summarize strategies for remediation of these deficits.


This webinar is eligible for SAC CEEs (Category A).
