We provide workshops for aides and assistants in school divisions that contract our services.
This workshop reviews basic knowledge of speech and language development from 0 to 5 years of age. Participants will learn the differences between speech and language delays versus disorders. The instructor provides an overview of some basic screenings tools and parent questionnaires that indicate further assessments for articulation and language delays.
This workshop teaches the differences between articulation and phonology delays and disorders. Participants attain strategies to shape or stimulate correct sound production, learn to use a hierarchy for teaching speech sounds, and develop an understanding for common phonological processes. Participants gain an awareness of common motor speech disorders such as apraxia and dysarthria.
This workshop reviews the different components of language including morphology, syntax, semantics, and pragmatics. Participants understand the difference between receptive, expressive and social language, and are able to generate strategies to target goals in each area.
This presentation demonstrates how to implement visual supports that promote speech and language therapy goals in the classrooms.
