Increasing Oral and Literate Language Skills of Children in Poverty

Learn practical strategies for building oral and literate language and executive functioning skills in children from a low socioeconomic status with this DVD course!

Total run time: 4 hours

This session will discuss the effects of poverty on low-socioeconomic-status (SES) children and investigate whether academic underachievement is caused by language impairment, environmental factors, or a combination of both. In order to differentiate language impairment from language difference based on environmental factors, participants will learn how to get away from knowledge-based testing and conduct dynamic assessment of information processing skills. We will address the issue of building oral and literate vocabulary skills in low-SES children and discuss how to build executive functioning skills as well. Increasing academic achievement and helping students in poverty meet new Common Core State Standards in language will be emphasized.

Learning Outcomes
After completing this program, you will be able to:

  • carry out three methods of language testing that involve dynamic assessment and information processing
  • explain 5-10 specific strategies for increasing vocabulary skills in low-socioeconomic-status (SES) students, including how to build vocabulary that supports knowledge required by Common Core State Standards
  • describe three specific strategies for increasing the executive functioning skills of low-SES children
