Identifying Student Strengths
SLPs often operate from a deficits perspective due to the
practical need to focus on assessment and qualification for services. In this
course – which is broken into six 5-minute blocks – the presenter will
demonstrate how to focus on students’ communicative strengths in order to build
rapport with students and foster positive, collaborative relationships with
other stakeholders. Then the presenter will guide you through actionable steps
to practice using a series of checklists to identify a student’s strengths and
reflect on the results.
You will be able to:
- Identify the communicative strengths of a student on your
caseload who has social communication deficits
What is a micro course?
