Using a Strengths-Based Approach to Support Adolescents with Language Disorders (PD102362)

Presenter(s): Kimberly Murza, PhD, CCC-SLP
Course Description

In order to best serve adolescent students transitioning to post-secondary settings, SLPs have to keep the end in mind. What are students’ college and/or career goals and how can we use current research on what employers want and what entry-level college courses expect to best prepare them for their future? In this session, the speaker discusses tools to modify intervention plans to incorporate current evidence in neurodiversity and self-determination theory as well as strategies for collaboration with a focus on student strengths.

This course is a recorded session from the 2021/2022 online conference “Reading, Writing, and the SLP: Preschool to High School.”
