Improving Phonological Awareness Skills in Preschool Children
Format(s): Journal (Online)
CEUs: 0.55
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.

Language in Kids Who Are Maltreated or Exposed Prenatally to Drugs or Alcohol
Format(s): Journal (Online)
CEUs: 0.45
4.5
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 explores the research on 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.

Improve Older Adults’ Communication Through Memory Mining
Format(s): eWorkshop
CEUs: 0.25
2.5
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.

During early development, gesture use by children can provide insight into what a child thinks and understands about the world during a time in which speech alone may not. This issue of Perspectives addressed gesture’s role in language learning and thinking, providing practical information for speech-language pathologists regarding both language impaired and typically developing populations.

Reading and Writing Development in School-Age Children: Current Concepts
Format(s): Journal (Online)
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.

Assessing Selective Mutism with DIRFloortime
Format(s): eWorkshop
CEUs: 0.2
2.0
Children with selective mutism are frequently difficult to assess because of their lack of verbal expression. Unlike some children on the autism spectrum, children with selective mutism are verbal in comfortable environments. Due to the nature of the disorder, SLPs can find it challenging to identify children with selective mutism as needing in-school support services. This eWorkshop presentation will provide assessment techniques using the DIRFloortime model as a foundation. Participants will learn to assess a child with selective mutism and write a clinical report.

Treating Selective Mutism with DIRFloortime
Format(s): eWorkshop
CEUs: 0.25
2.5
One of the greatest challenges in treating children with Selective Mutism (SM) is the complexity of their profile. This presentation will offer ways to support children with a diagnosis of selective mutism to help them become verbal and solidify any constrictions they may have developmentally. We will show how using the DIRFloortime Model to treat children with SM not only helps them start talking, but also supports their ability to climb the symbolic ladder. Strategies will be addressed to support common struggles that impact families of children with SM such as toileting, sleep, tantrums, and procrastination.

Improve Your Students' Spelling Abilities
Format(s): Audio CD and Manual, Additional Manual(s)
CEUs: 0.2
2.0
One way to improve our clients’ communication is to help them improve their spelling skills. In this program, we’ll use writing samples from students struggling with written language and we’ll examine the potential causes of their spelling difficulties while analyzing common errors (e.g., phonemic, orthographic pattern, and morphological awareness). Following the analysis, we’ll develop goals and then consider and practice sample intervention strategies and activities that address the students’ specific linguistic deficiencies. Throughout the session, we’ll address the rationale for the SLP’s role in assessing and remediating spelling.

Assessment and Intervention of Communication in Children Birth–5: A Developmental Approach
Format(s): DVD and Manual, Additional Manual(s)
CEUs: 0.35
3.5
Children learn language in the context of spontaneous, social interactions, making language acquisition embedded in the affective, cognitive, and social domains. However, language comprehension is often overlooked. To develop effective assessment and intervention strategies, it is critical for SLPs to understand developmental communication milestones and rely on a child’s non-verbal behaviors, even though the behaviors may not be a reliable predictor in the context of the child’s full developmental profile.

The Case for the Narrow View of Reading
Format(s): Journal (Online), Journal (Print)
CEUs: 0.4
4.0
The fundamental problem with a broad view of reading is that it conflates two very different abilities—word recognition and comprehension. The narrow view restricts the scope of reading to word recognition, thereby focusing on a skill that can be taught to all students except those with most severe disabiliities. This clinical forum presents a rationale for embracing the narrow view of reading, followed by responses from leading researchers and clinicians.

Social Communication in Preschoolers and School-Age Children: Assessment and Intervention
Format(s): Audio CD and Manual, Additional Manual(s)
CEUs: 0.2
2.0
One of the responsibilities of the school-based speech-language pathologist is to address the problem-solving and social communication skills of children with diverse linguistic profiles. Children with language impairment may experience problems in social communication because of specific social cognitive or pragmatic deficits (e.g., misreading of social cues, limited strategies for peer group entry), or as a consequence of peers’ negative perceptions of their language abilities.
