Using Curriculum-Based Language Intervention to Meet Individualized Goals (WEB17205)

Presenter(s): Nickola Wolf Nelson, PhD, CCC-SLP, BCS-CL
Course Description

This webinar is part two of a two-part series on curriculum-based language assessment and intervention. Each webinar stands alone, but together they provide a more complete picture of this framework. Learn about part one, available through the ASHA Learning Pass subscription or as an a la carte purchase.

Curriculum-based language assessment and intervention is one way for SLPs to create a comprehensive picture of a student’s oral and written language needs and pinpoint areas to target in intervention. This webinar will focus on how to use information from curriculum-based language assessment to provide curriculum-based language intervention in classroom or pull-out settings. The course will discuss techniques such as using actual curricular materials to target students’ individualized goals while meeting core curriculum standards in classroom-based writing labs and small group contexts. The course also will offer case studies of students across grade levels (and encourage participants to reflect on their own examples) to illustrate techniques for addressing problems of word structure knowledge, vocabulary, sentence structure, and discourse formulation and comprehension across all modalities. Discussion will include how to decide when pull-out approaches might be necessary to supplement intervention in classroom-based contexts.

Learning Objectives:
You will be able to:

  • use curriculum-based materials and tasks to address language/literacy problems across language levels (discourse, sentence, vocabulary, and sound/word structure) and modalities (listening, speaking, reading, and writing)
