Capitalizing on Children’s Learning Patterns for Fast, Effective Language Intervention
Format(s): Journal (Online)
ASHA CEUs:
0.7
7.0
Taking into account children’s learning processes is important when SLPs design interventions aimed at teaching new skills or expanding abilities. This journal self-study – based on a special issue of Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in Schools – focuses on the type of learning that happens implicitly and quickly, without effort or even the knowledge that we are learning. This type of learning – known as statistical learning – refers to the way that children recognize patterns in the world around them. As language is full of patterns, this type of learning plays a large role in how children learn sound production, words, grammatical structures, and more. The articles in this selfstudy explore how SLPs can capitalize on implicit learning processes during intervention to help learning happen faster.

Reaching Success: Expository Text for Secondary Students
Format(s): Streaming Video
ASHA CEUs:
0.35
3.5
Students in grades 6–12 frequently struggle with both the content and use of academic language. As they move through the secondary grades, they are confronted with increasingly more expository language, as opposed to the mostly narrative language they saw in elementary grades. This course will explore the fascinating relationship between these two language structures, which provides a strong basis for our therapeutic interventions as speech-language pathologists. The presenter will provide examples of linking narratives to expository text to ultimately help students successfully use academic language at the secondary level. The presenter will share strategies to use in different service delivery settings (one-on-one intervention vs. in the classroom).

Preschool Language Disorders: Identification and Outcomes Reporting
Format(s): Journal (Online)
ASHA CEUs:
0.5
5.0
A child’s early language development can be used to predict later language and literacy skills, as well as school readiness and academic success. It has long been a challenge to distinguish children who are “late talkers” and will eventually develop age-appropriate language skills from those who might have a language delay that requires intervention. This journal self-study primarily examines issues related to assessing language disorders in preschoolers, in an attempt to identify those children who may be at risk for language and learning difficulties and would benefit from support. Specifically, articles examine risk factors for being a late talker, alternative methods of screening for language impairment, and the usefulness of parent and teacher reports when screening bilingual children. One final article discusses collecting and reporting outcomes for preschool children with speech and language disorders. Clinicians can use this information to improve their approach to language screening and outcomes reporting for preschoolers on their caseload.

Gesture Use in Young Children With Atypical Language Development
Format(s): Journal (Online)
ASHA CEUs:
0.35
3.5
It is well-established that the use of gesture is a precursor to language development. But what exactly is the relationship between gesture and language, and can the nature of this relationship be used diagnostically to better understand a child’s language development? This journal self-study examines these questions across a few populations. Two articles look at young children with specific language impairment or delay, and the combined results of these studies offer a complimentary view of the relationship between gesture and language based on the observed linguistic deficit (receptive or expressive). Another article compares gesture use between children with impaired hearing vs. peers with typical hearing. Findings from this study not only describe the use of gesture in young children with hearing impairment but also provide clinically useful information about caregivers’ responses to these gestures. The final article examines gesture use in girls with Rett syndrome. In addition to providing a helpful tutorial on a lesser-known population, the authors suggest how factors such as motor skills and genetics also contribute to the relationship between gesture and language.

5.5
Phonological awareness – the ability to identify and manipulate sounds in words – has been shown to predict a child’s later reading ability. But phonological awareness does not always develop naturally and thus requires instruction. However, many preschool teachers lack sufficient knowledge of phonological awareness and how to teach it. This journal self-study explores ways to improve phonological awareness instruction in preschools and provides suggestions on how SLPs can help teachers improve their phonological awareness knowledge. Clinicians will find practical tips for working directly with children with phonological awareness deficits and their families or with children enrolled in early education programs who need additional instruction to improve phonological awareness.

Children who experience stress and trauma in utero and early infancy, as well as those who are maltreated as they grow up, are at a higher risk for many medical, developmental, psychological, and emotional problems, including deficiencies in language skills due to brain dysfunction or lack of adequate stimulation. SLPs should be aware of the impact that maltreatment and prenatal exposure to drugs and alcohol can have on a child’s development to ensure appropriate assessment and treatment. This journal self-study includes research articles that explore the effect of maltreatment on language as well as what impact prenatal exposure to cocaine, alcohol, and other medical and environmental factors may have on language development. This information will help clinicians tease out small language differences that may relate to social and academic difficulties that cannot be explained otherwise.

There is a pressing need for creative, therapeutic approaches that appeal to a culturally and linguistically diverse population of older adults. One such approach is memory mining, a developmentally and culturally appropriate intervention strategy that can increase the communicative engagement of older adults with cognitive-communicative challenges. This presentation provides a foundation for understanding age-related demographic, cognitive, and linguistic changes and how memory mining, also known as facilitated reminiscence, can lead to better communication outcomes for this population.

Reading and Writing Development in School-Age Children: Current Concepts
Format(s): Journal (Online)
ASHA CEUs:
0.65
6.5
Many SLPs are playing an increasing role in addressing literacy skills and often work as part of a team in schools to improve students’ reading and writing. This journal self-study adds to the knowledge base of SLPs working on literacy. Five articles address how literacy progresses over time in both typically developing children and those with speech and language disorders. SLPs who work with school-age children in or outside of schools will come away with an increased understanding of the role of linguistic awareness skills—such as phonological, morphological, and orthographic awareness—on reading and writing development, as well as the importance of vocabulary and overall language development. Each article provides recommendations for clinical practice that SLPs can consider as they continue to expand their literacy instruction.
