Childhood Maltreatment: Communication Outcomes and Services (On Demand Webinar) (WEB19211)

Presenter(s): Deborah Hwa-Froelich, PhD, CCC-SLP
Course Description

Audiologists and speech-language pathologists may or may not be aware that an individual has been exposed to one or more types of maltreatment, including emotional, physical, and/or sexual abuse and/or neglect. Maltreatment influences an individual’s neurobiological structure and function; cognitive processes such as attention, memory, social cognition, and executive function; as well as communication development and behavior. This webinar will explore the incidence of maltreatment; developmental outcomes; assessment, intervention, and prevention strategies; and the role of communication professionals.

Learning Objectives:
You will be able to:

  • list different kinds of maltreatment and explain how one person may experience multiple types
  • explain to colleagues how maltreatment could affect communication
  • identify strategies for assessing and treating children who have experienced maltreatment and have communication disorders

What is a webinar?
