First Words: Assessment and Speech Therapy Goals

Presented by Susan H. Lederer PhD, MA, BS

First Words: Assessment and Speech Therapy Goals

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

Children acquire approximately 50 single words before they produce word combinations. For young children with language delays exhibiting small single word/sign vocabularies, the role of the SLP is to assess and facilitate the acquisition of new target words/signs. For most of these children, a developmental approach guides this process. In this course, we will discuss assessment in terms of gathering, categorizing, and analyzing single word data observed in the natural environment and obtained from practical, parent-report tools. A case study will illustrate how this process leads to choosing specific single words/signs to target within and across semantic content categories. A sample intervention will conclude the course.

Early Word Combinations: Assessment and Therapy Goals

Presented by Susan H. Lederer PhD, MA, BS

Early Word Combinations: Assessment and Therapy Goals

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

Moving children from single words to word combinations is not just a matter of teaching two- and then three-word utterances. For young children with language delays in this period, the role of the SLP is to identify phrase/sentence types (i.e., content/form interactions or semantic relations) the child already produces and set new goals to expand the variety of types. In this course, we will discuss assessment in terms of gathering, categorizing, and analyzing early phrase/sentence data observed and elicited in the natural environment. A case study will illustrate how this process leads to choosing goals. Sample demonstration intervention concludes the course.

Intervention for Single Words through Simple Sentences

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

In this course, participants will explore evidence-based intervention strategies and activities for children with language delays working on single words, phrases, and simple sentences. We will discuss the continuum from child-directed to adult-directed strategies with an emphasis on blended models integrating the best of both (i.e., focused language stimulation, enhanced milieu teaching). The benefit of routines, themes, and books will be explored. Live demonstrations will be included.
