Serving Clients From Diverse Backgrounds: Speech-Language Difference vs. Disorder, Free Case Studies Course
Please add only one copy of each free Case Study course to your cart.
This course is available for free for ASHA members from January 1–31, 2017.
Currently, more than a fifth of school-age children speak a language
other than English at home, and the population of English language learners
will continue to grow. SLPs need to conduct assessments that will determine
whether speech-language production errors are indicative of a disorder or the
result of the normal process of second language acquisition. We must then
provide treatment that supports the needs of diverse learners. This course will
provide an easy-to-use framework to distinguish speech-language disorders from
speech-language differences as well as introduce practical interventions SLPs
can use immediately to support English language learners.
You will be able to:
- describe and
apply a framework to differentiate speech-language errors from speech-language
appropriate speech and language goals to support English language learners
- identify and
describe effective speech- and literacy-based language treatment strategies
that yield optimal outcomes for diverse learners
