Presenter(s): Lillian Stiegler, PhD, CCC-SLP
Course Description

This webinar discusses all aspects of echolalia, a complex and often misunderstood language phenomenon.

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
