Intended audience: Communication health assistants

This session pertains to: School-aged children (6-17)

Level: Introductory/Intermediate (Assumes little/no familiarity to general familiarity with the literature and professional practice within the areas covered.)

This interactive workshop will discuss practical strategies and treatment activities that communication health assistants can use to build receptive and expressive language knowledge in preschool through early school-aged children. We will systematically address some of the most common speech and language goals and provide a foundation for building functional, in-class supports and activities.

Learning Outcomes

Participants will be able to:

  1. Gather, evaluate, create and share strategies and activities that can be applied in class for common language goals.
  2. Use a systematic approach to understand semantic language development to create meaningful in-class activities and therapy sessions.
