Do you wonder, as an SLP, what your roles and responsibilities are to your students’ written language needs? Are you looking for ways to expand your knowledge and competence in this area? Would you like more information about the role that oral language plays in reading and writing?
Many students with communication disorders also have reading and writing disabilities (including dyslexia) or are at risk for developing them. School administrators and classroom teachers may not recognize the vital role SLPs play in literacy development. This session outlines the roles, responsibilities, and ethical considerations of SLPs in working with students with written language challenges and explains the relationship between oral and written language. It equips the SLP and other educators with evidence-based strategies for supporting students, empowers professionals to work together more collaboratively, and directs them to resources to further enhance their learning.
NOTE: Tuition includes one free CE Certificate (participant will be able to print the certificate of completion after completing the on-line post-test (80% passing score) and completing the evaluation).
