Maximizing Intelligibility in Children and Adolescents With Down Syndrome (On Demand Webinar)
This On Demand Webinar is available from October 19, 2018 through October 17, 2019
This webinar will discuss the anatomical, physiological, neurological, and cognitive factors that affect the speech intelligibility of children and adolescents with Down syndrome. Although there are similarities among people who have this genetic disorder, evaluation and treatment are highly individualized based on specific factors that influence a particular individual’s speech. The speaker will discuss evaluation and treatment planning, including forms that clinicians can use right away in their own practice.
You will be able to:
- identify speech sound characteristics of children/adolescents with Down syndrome
- identify factors that may impact the speech development and intelligibility of children/adolescents with Down syndrome (e.g., hearing, cognition, anatomical differences, hypotonia, motor planning difficulties)
- evaluate speech sound production and intelligibility in children/adolescents with Down syndrome using assessment principles, forms, and practices
- select targets and implement effective evidence-based interventions for maximizing speech intelligibility and generalizing skills in children/adolescents with Down syndrome
