This session pertains to: School Aged (5-17)

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


Increasingly, school-based speech-language pathologists (S-LPs) are adopting a collaborative classroom-based approach to service provision. In this webinar, I will discuss three themes that arise from a review of evidence related to educator-S-LP collaboration. These themes include:

  • establishing effective partnerships between educators and S-LPs,
  • educational benefits demonstrated for targeted, at-risk and typically-developing children after collaborative classroom-based vocabulary, narrative language and emergent literacy interventions
  • and when classroom-based services are not sufficient. 

Participants will receive a user-friendly, single page summary of this current evidence that is appropriate for sharing with colleagues and administrators in educational settings.

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