Children and adolescents with ASD, ADHD, ACEs, and LLD lack self-regulation, emotion understanding, and social cognition. They display these deficits with a combination of poor conversational and interaction skills, frequent meltdowns, and disruptive/oppositional behaviors – accompanied by poor language, academic performance, and mounting frustration. How can we as therapists and teachers effectively identify, understand, and address these combined challenges to allow children to achieve both social and academic success?
The answer – develop a toolbox of language-, communication-, and attachment-based interventions!
Join international expert and author on language and literacy interventions Barbara Culatta, PhD, CCC-SLP, and learn to skillfully integrate language- and relationship-based strategies grounded in attachment and behavioral-cognitive research to effectively improve self-regulation, communication, and social skills in children. Dr. Culatta will guide you through a language-based framework that builds awareness of self and others, provides alternatives to acting out or shutting down, and is effective in any setting!
