Motivating Adolescents to Participate in Literacy Intervention: A Case Example From Telepractice (PD102925)

Presenter(s): Ginger G Collins, PhD, CCC-SLP
Course Description

Motivation often declines as children reach adolescence. Poor motivation inhibits participation and engagement in language-based interventions. The purpose of this presentation is to demonstrate how intervention can be designed to increase client motivation to participate in therapy while improving language-based literacy skills. This session presents motivation and behavior change techniques based on self-determination theory. It also includes examples of how to integrate these techniques into interventions with adolescent clients to satisfy their need for autonomy, relatedness, and competence while simultaneously addressing language-based literacy deficits.

This course is a recorded session from the 2022 ASHA Convention Virtual Library (session 2116V).
