Increasing Oral and Literate Language Skills of Children in Poverty
Format(s): DVD and Manual
CEUs: 0.4
4.0
This session will discuss the effects of poverty on low-socioeconomic-status (SES) children and investigate whether academic underachievement is caused by language impairment, environmental factors, or a combination of both. In order to differentiate language impairment from language difference based on environmental factors, participants will learn how to get away from knowledge-based testing and conduct dynamic assessment of information processing skills. We will address the issue of building oral and literate vocabulary skills in low-SES children and discuss how to build executive functioning skills as well. Increasing academic achievement and helping students in poverty meet new Common Core State Standards in language will be emphasized.

Effective Interventions for English Language Learners
Format(s): DVD and Manual, Additional Manual(s)
CEUs: 0.2

It is more important than ever for speech-language pathologists to facilitate native language development in English language learners (ELLs), even when these children attend English-only schools. This self-study video outlines intervention principles, as well as factors to consider when planning intervention programs for ELLs—such as cultural identity, academic achievement, home communication, cross-linguistic transfer, and facilitation factors. The prioritizing of intervention goals is explored through case studies. Specific areas of language intervention for ELL children with language disorders are discussed, including vocabulary, grammar, story structure, and phonemic awareness, in addition to preventive techniques for the classroom and home to address ELLs’ general language needs.
