Summary: This session—a recorded session from ASHA’s 2020 Schools Connect conference—demonstrates how to use a language-levels model (i.e., sound, word, sentence, discourse) to explain relationships across oral and written language modalities and to advocate for the role SLPs play in literacy intervention. The speaker discusses how and why intervention strategies differ based on students’ target goals, strengths, and weaknesses. The session explores how and why certain intervention strategies are best to target the sound/word structure knowledge that is essential for reading, decoding, spelling, and vocabulary learning, while other strategies are good for working on the sentence/discourse and vocabulary knowledge that is essential for language comprehension and formulation.

Summary: Published research indicates that outcomes in children with hearing loss are generally lower than their hearing counterparts. Given the cascading effects auditory deprivation and language delays may cause in children, providing differential diagnoses can present a challenge. This course identifies commonly occurring comorbid presentations in children with hearing loss and describes the process of making differential diagnoses.

Summary: This recorded session from ASHA’s 2021 Schools Connect online conference presents an evidence-based balanced literacy approach as a model for assessment and intervention that targets aspects of literacy beyond decoding and comprehension, such as morphology and orthography. The presenter also discusses considerations for culturally responsive assessment and intervention.

Summary: As students move from learning to read to reading to learn, they step onto the path toward becoming active, independent, strategic academic learners. This session explains strategy intervention, which is supported by a strong body of research evidence and well-suited to the expertise and resources of school-based SLPs. The speaker discusses selecting teachable strategies, teaching through spoken interactions around written texts, connecting to the classroom, and moving strategies from SLP teaching tools toward student learning tools. The session demonstrates an evidence-based contextualized skill intervention called Sketch and Speak and discusses core teaching procedures as well as adaptations and extensions for different students and situations.

Summary: SLPs have noted the diagnostic challenge of distinguishing between the clinical indicators of language disorder, language delay based on the impacts of being reared in poverty, and the linguistic variation of students who speak African American English (AAE). This session discusses evidence-based assessment and treatment practices that SLPs can utilize when working with speakers of AAE and other nonmainstream dialects to help them identify students with true language and literacy disorders and provide needed interventions in a timely manner.

Summary: Childhood apraxia of speech (CAS) is a complex sensory-motor speech disorder that typically requires both intensive individualized intervention and systematic opportunities for generalization and carryover. CAS also has significant academic and functional impacts, especially on participation, language, and literacy. This session uses case studies to explore areas of need requiring different service delivery models in the school setting. The speaker discusses potential areas of collaboration to support the learning and full participation of children with CAS. This course is a recorded session from the 2020/2021 online conference “Practical Solutions for Elementary Assessment, Treatment, and Collaboration.”
Presenter(s): Donna Thomas, PhD, CCC-SLP, Dee M. Lance, PhD, CCC-SLP
Credit(s): PDHs: 1.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.1
Summary: This session addresses the connection between oral and written language as it applies to service delivery for school-age children. The speakers explore incorporating children’s literature in treatment, meeting states’ curricular standards, and using various service delivery models that support language intervention in schools.
Presenter(s): Kathryn L Cabbage, PhD, CCC-SLP
Credit(s): PDHs: 1.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.1
Summary: This session explores clinical considerations for successfully evaluating and treating phonological awareness deficits in children with speech sound disorders. The speaker identifies various phonological awareness skills and shares ideas for how to successfully integrate phonological awareness practice into speech intervention sessions and classroom-based lessons, particularly for children with speech sound disorders.
Presenter(s): Karen Olivia Natoci, MS, CCC-SLP
Credit(s): PDHs: 1.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.1
Summary: This session from ASHA's 2021 Schools Connect online conference examines how to incorporate written language instruction to enhance language interventions for students with complex communication needs who use augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) systems. The presenter discusses how writing practice using AAC fits into the context of a balanced literacy framework. The session also outlines the benefits of collaborating with occupational therapists.

Summary: Addressing the vocabulary learning needs of your students can be daunting. Where do I start with vocabulary target selection? What is the best way to teach my students to efficiently learn vocabulary for language and reading comprehension? This session explores semantic learning expectations for academic success and shares evidence-based practices for providing opportunities to increase vocabulary knowledge and use. Learners will walk away with information on how to build a strong foundation in semantics to set the stage for meaningful reading comprehension assessment that leads to appropriate interventions.This course is a recorded session from the 2022/2023 online conference "Assessment, Eligibility, and Dismissal in Schools: Strategies, Tools, and Decision-Making."
