Summary: 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.

Summary: This course examines The PLAY Project®, an evidence-based home intervention and consultation program for young children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The program uses developmentally appropriate, play-based methods and coaches parents and other caregivers to extend treatment beyond the therapy sessions. The presenter explores the program’s main assessment and intervention principles, highlighting specific techniques and activities. The course also presents multiple case studies as useful examples of children's progress in treatment, the practical challenges of implementing a program, overcoming funding obstacles, and the importance of multicultural awareness in ASD intervention, including the adoption of the model for Ohio’s Part C Early Intervention System and a project that implemented the program with a low-income, underserved population in the Caribbean island country Saint Kitts and Nevis.
