Identifying Student Strengths (WEB18260)

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

SLPs often operate from a deficits perspective due to the practical need to focus on assessment and qualification for services. In this course – which is broken into six 5-minute blocks – presenter Kim Murza demonstrates how to focus on students’ communicative strengths in order to build rapport with students and foster positive, collaborative relationships with other stakeholders. She then guides you through actionable steps to practice using a series of checklists to identify a student’s strengths and reflect on the results.
