Summary: This session explores how the core deficits of individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) impact their development of reading comprehension, a critical skill for success in academic, social, and vocational settings. The session—a recorded session from ASHA’s 2020 Schools Connect conference—includes discussion, demonstration, and application of assessment techniques and evidence-supported intervention strategies to facilitate reading comprehension for students with ASD.

Summary: Dyslexia and developmental language disorders (DLD) – relatively common, language-based disorders that affect children’s reading and academic achievement as well as social and life outcomes – frequently co-occur in the same child. This session examines the differences between the two disorders, how to identify children at risk for either or both, and how to provide treatment and accommodations to promote positive outcomes. The speaker discusses evidence-based practices for assessing and treating reading difficulties.

Summary: Clinicians who work with children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) are aware of the challenges presented by the varied abilities and behaviors of this group. This journal self-study focuses on special populations of children with ASD, including those who are deaf, those who use AAC, and bilingual children. A final article discusses how intervention can be extended beyond improving social skills to working toward establishing and maintaining actual friendships. SLPs working with children with ASD can use information from these articles to improve clinical practice when working with children with these particular special situations.

Summary: Self-advocacy and self-determination skills are important for engaging in successful interactions, achieving goals, and promoting shared perspective-taking, particularly for individuals with autism and other neurodivergent individuals. This on demand webinar explores strategies SLPs can use when working with neurodivergent and autistic children and adolescents to support their self-advocacy and self-determination skills so they can effectively express their preferences and goals.
Presenter(s): Geralyn R Timler, PhD, CCC-SLP
Credit(s): PDHs: 1.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.1
Summary: The lived experiences of neurodivergent adolescents and adults reveal that changes are needed in how SLPs approach social communication assessment and intervention. Client-centered protocols for assessing social communication must address two goals: the needs of the student, and the perspectives and behaviors of the student's peers that support or hinder social interactions. This session presents strategies and tools for addressing both goals.This course is a recorded session from the 2022/2023 online conference "Assessment, Eligibility, and Dismissal in Schools: Strategies, Tools, and Decision-Making."
Presenter(s): Laura S. DeThorne, PhD, CCC-SLP
Credit(s): PDHs: 1.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.1
Summary: This session describes how to work effectively within the constraints of school-based structures to improve outcomes for elementary school children on the autism spectrum. The speaker highlights key differences between a skills-based vs. supports-based approach to peer interaction in a school-based setting. In addition, she uses two case studies to walk through key elements of designing a supports-based approach—including goal-writing, activity selection, and strategy implementation.
Presenter(s): Naomi Grinney, LCSW, IMH-E
Credit(s): PDHs: 0.5, ASHA CEUs*: 0.05
Summary: This on demand conversation features Naomi Grinney, a licensed clinical social worker and infant mental health specialist, who discusses strategies for building parent capacity to support social-emotional skill development for children with both language and social-emotional delays.
Presenter(s): Emily B Rubin, MS, CCC-SLP
Credit(s): PDHs: 1.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.1
Summary: This session reviews the neuroscience and evidence-based practices that are essential considerations for creating learning environments that enhance active engagement for pre-symbolic autistic children. The session identifies high-priority objectives in social communication, emotional regulation, and creating learning environments for neurodiverse learners that promote active engagement.

Summary: SLPs who work with individuals with development disabilities across the life span are often confronted with myths that may limit the communication of their clients, students, and patients. This on demand webinar examines some of these myths and how they affect the delivery of communication services and supports. The speakers share evidence and case examples that debunk these myths and explain strategies you may use to change perceptions.

Summary: The differential diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in children who have a hearing loss is challenging, due in part to the lack of valid standardized assessments for this population. This webinar will explore communication characteristics of children with both ASD and hearing loss and those who are deaf/hard of hearing but do not have ASD, focusing on distinguishing attributes. Awareness of the features that are unique to ASD in the deaf/hard of hearing population will enable clinicians to more accurately identify ASD in these children and lead to earlier access to appropriate and much-needed intervention. The webinar will also highlight the importance of interdisciplinary collaboration when working with children with co-occurring hearing loss and ASD.
