This webinar will discuss all aspects of echolalia, a complex and often misunderstood language phenomenon. The speaker will discuss the origins of echolalia and review the evidence that supports it as a positive indicator of language development. The speaker will describe how to perform ongoing assessment before and during mitigation, and share intervention strategies to facilitate the transition to self-generated language.

Learning Objectives:
You will be able to:

  • apply Blanc’s stages of gestalt language acquisition to utterances from language samples as part of ongoing assessment
  • develop and implement language intervention plans (including models and contingent responses) to facilitate mitigation of echolalia
  • identify strategies for working with parents, caregivers, and professionals to educate them (1) that echolalia is important evidence of language development and (2) about carryover/generalization techniques
