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.

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.
