Presenter(s): Dionna Latimer-Hearn, PhD, CCC-SLP
Course Description

This webinar explores methods and strategies that school-based SLPs can use to improve educational access for populations identified as at-risk for being entangled in the school-to-confinement pipeline.

Course Reviews

"Every aspect of this course is wonderful; I will be reflecting, reviewing, and referring to what I experienced today."

"There are a myriad of ways to apply this knowledge. First and most importantly, I can consider my interactions with students: Meet each student where they stand, within their own language, culture and family as well as their territory within the school environment."

"The webinar was very well-structured and flowed easily. The shared case studies were personal and very impactful and helpful. Very interesting and timely webinar!"
