These services play a critical role in helping infants, toddlers, and their families address a developmental delay or disorder that can affect development and learning. Topics related to serving pediatric populations from birth to age 3 and their families will include navigating Part C of IDEA, understanding different service delivery approaches and settings, building family capacity, and assessing and treating complex communication and swallowing needs in low-incidence populations.

Promoting Rapid Change for Children with Severe Phonological Disorders (Grades PreK-6)

Dates: February 6 in Fayetteville & February 7 in Little Rock

In this seminar, outstanding presenter and experienced speech-language pathologist Teresa Farnham will equip you with practical assessment and treatment tools, strategies and ideas to help you facilitate rapid change in the phonological systems of the preschool and school age children with whom you work. Teresa will help you develop new strategies with the goal of improving the efficiency and effectiveness of your phonologic therapy.

 

You will learn how to select phonemic targets based on students’ actual phonological knowledge, as well as how to use maximal oppositions in pairs in treatment, yielding improved generalization across the child’s entire phonologic system in a relatively short time. Teresa is the author of Speech Language Therapy: Promoting Rapid Change for Children with Severe Phonological Disorders, the extensive resource handbook you will receive at the seminar.

You will leave with a toolbox filled with practical strategies you can implement the very next day to more effectively assess, intervene and facilitate rapid phonological growth in children with various severe speech sound disorders.

School Service Delivery: Practical Tools for Assessing Your Results

Presenter: Jean Blosser, Ed.D., CCC-SLP

Available until May 2, 2020

All areas of speech-language pathology practice require practitioners to demonstrate their value and contributions with specific, measurable outcomes. Preschool and K-12 school settings are no exception. Indeed, the call for results-driven educational practices, systematic methods of measuring educational outcomes, and accountability has never been greater. This webinar will present practical tools for determining outcomes in school speech-language programs so SLPs can advocate with administrators, modify intervention practices, and improve communication with educators and parents. The framework emphasizes three interrelated areas of service delivery: (1) student outcomes, (2) interprofessional collaboration outcomes, and (3) systemic outcomes. Participants will focus on their own programs while learning to apply several practical outcomes-measurement tools – including satisfaction surveys, feedback forms, performance improvement plans, team assessments, progress monitoring, and more – that can improve their services for the benefit of their students.

Price: $99 member; $129 nonmember; group discount available

Assessing and Treating Grammatical Deficits in Children and Young Adults

Available until April 2021

English grammar develops in a fairly predictable sequence, and errors are common as children learn grammar rules. Children with language impairments often demonstrate continued difficulty with grammatical morphemes. This journal self-study explores issues related to grammar development, as well as factors to consider when assessing and treating grammar deficits. Clinicians can use this information to improve intervention and optimize grammar development in children with language disorders.


You will be able to:

-identify grammatical structures that may be most problematic for children with language impairments to learn and use
-discuss factors that impact a child’s ability to perceive and produce grammatical morphemes
-describe at least three tasks that can be used to examine grammar development
-explain three treatment approaches that can be used to address grammar errors
