Presented by Kimberly Murza, PhD, CCC-SLP

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.

With a majority of the country having adopted the Common Core State Standards or standards quite similar in rigor, speech-language pathologists have been asked to align their intervention goals and objectives to grade-level standards. At times this can feel like a daunting task, especially for those children on our caseload who have significant communication and social deficits. The focus of this presentation will be to provide speech-language pathologists with the tools they need to determine the language underpinnings of the standards that require pragmatic language competence. By "beginning with the end in mind" whether this might mean college and career or social engagement and an achievable level of independence, clinicians are able to focus on what matters most. The goal of this course is to help speech-language pathologists sift through educational standards to determine just that.

Supporting Students' Inference Generation

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.

Inference generation in reading and social contexts is critical for college and career success. However, many of the students speech-language pathologists serve have difficulty with the high-level skill of inference generation in reading. Students with pragmatic language deficits often struggle with generating inferences about the underlying meaning of a conversational exchange. Similar cognitive processes are used to generate inferences socially and in text which is why many students on our caseload struggle with both. These courses will provide speech-language pathologists with foundational knowledge about inference generation they need along with the evidence-based tools for targeting inference generation to best support the students they serve.
