Summary: This course explores an effective technique for building complex narrative language and thought. By "pressing pause," SLPs and students can take time to talk about and connect "thoughts" (mental states) to elements of story grammar such as initiating events, feelings, and plans. This process is integral for discovering intentions and motivations, perspective-taking, thinking critically, solving problems, and participating in social situations. Speakers also discuss a powerful way to teach "inference" using film "jump cuts."

Summary: This course focuses on a meaning-based approach to language assessment and intervention for intentional communication skills in young children. The nonlinguistic and linguistic context support meaning-driven communication expressed with language form from the child. Speakers discuss language sample analysis and the developmental hierarchy of Language Content/Form/Use, and highlight how this approach is less biased than norm-based assessments when used with children from culturally and linguistically diverse contexts.

Summary: This session highlights recent advances in understanding language acquisition in children who are deaf/hard of hearing (DHH), with an emphasis on the acquisition of sign languages (either on their own or alongside spoken languages). Conceptual advances include: (1) a more accurate way of thinking about "average range" when interpreting research data and (2) the development of "language access profiles" as an alternative to "communication mode." Speakers present advances in measurement, by introducing three new tools that are available for clinical use: the D-LEAT, the LAPT, and the ASL-CDI 2.0. The session concludes by highlighting recent empirical discoveries about the relationship between the timing of American Sign Language (ASL) access, the amount of ASL input, and the trajectory of ASL vocabulary acquisition in DHH children from hearing families. This course is a recorded session from the 2021 ASHA Convention Virtual Library (session 2225V). It was developed by, and presenters were invited by, Listening, Language and Speech in Children Who are Deaf and Hard of Hearing. Content disclosure: This session covers a broad spectrum of recent research results about early language experiences and language acquisition in young deaf/hard of hearing children, including descriptions of three tools for measuring language experience and language background: D-LEAT, LAPT, and ASL-CDI 2.0.

Summary: School-based SLPs who work with African American children can feel underprepared to properly evaluate their language abilities. This live webinar (December 21, 2022, 2-4 p.m. ET) explores variation in narrative practices common within AAE-speaking communities. The presenters discuss widely held beliefs about narrative language and its variation, how these beliefs affect clinical practice, and insights from research into how we can expand our narrative language assessment practices to be more inclusive of culturally based narrative variation.

Summary: Deaf children are seen in increasing numbers in public schools and SLPs' private practices, though there are few graduate-level programs that prepare SLPs to work with this culturally and linguistically unique population. This course is intended for SLPs with little to no knowledge of bilingual (American Sign Language [ASL] and spoken language) assessment of children who are Deaf/hard of hearing. The session provides a beginning foundation so that you can approach the assessment of a bilingual DHH child with an increased sense of awareness and tools at your disposal.

Summary: Audiologists and SLPs are critical team members who can support listening and spoken language outcomes for students who are deaf/hard of hearing (DHH). This webinar discusses auditory-verbal intervention as an approach for learners who are DHH and learning to listen and/or talk. The presenters explore foundational elements critical for success in auditory-verbal intervention, including audiologic assessment and management, caregiver engagement, and support from interprofessional teams.

Summary: This session from ASHA’s 2021 Schools Connect online conference provides tools for evaluating the picture books you currently use, equips you with arguments for why it is ethically important to use representative picture books and other materials, and helps you identify resources to develop a bookshelf that is aligned with your caseload composition. In addition, the presenters describe programs and strategies for implementing these selection practices into your everyday process. Gather the picture books that you most frequently use in intervention and have them with you when you watch the session.

Summary: Young adults with mild-to-moderate language impairments and low emotional intelligence often struggle to perform independently in mainstream adult settings. This session from ASHA's 2021 Schools Connect online conference discusses language and emotional intelligence skills that help post-secondary students achieve better quality-of-life outcomes. The speaker discusses strategies, activities, and resources that SLPs and their secondary students can use to improve outcomes. The session strives to reaffirm and refine SLPs' capacity to make a positive societal impact by serving this student population.

Summary: This session from ASHA's 2021 Schools Connect online conference explores issues related to conducting screenings and assessments for speech-language services in schools. The speaker discusses ways to streamline the screening referral and assessment process, the SLP's role in Response to Intervention (RTI)/Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS), and how to address complications the COVID-19 pandemic has introduced related to managing screening and assessment needs in schools.
