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.

Learning Outcomes
You will be able to:

  • describe and apply a framework to differentiate speech-language errors from speech-language disorders
  • identify 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
This free CEU course is part of ASHA's 8-month Case Studies program. Enjoy one free course per month through August 2017, and get practical, real-world solutions to apply in your work setting. Don't forget to check out the rest of our free courses!

Note: Free courses are available for ASHA members only. This course will be available for sale for both members and nonmembers at the beginning of the following month.
