How to Create Engaging Speech Language Intervention Using Teletherapy Webinar
Tuesday, August 11th 3:00 – 4:00 PM CST
Course Type: Live Webinar
This is evidence-based practice for our virtual world. We’ll show how you can use literacy-based intervention on a remote platform to help your students achieve robust storytelling skills, work on phonological awareness and speech production skills. What’s even better is that when we do return to in-person learning, this approach to intervention works great in person too. And, we’ll share easy ways to track your students’ progress.
This course is offered for 0.1 ASHA CEUs
(Introductory Level, Professional Area)
While it is true that some therapeutic techniques do not work in remote settings, several research-based strategies not only continue to improve communication in virtual settings but enhance communication because of their highly interactive nature and increased parent involvement. This presentation covers how to find appropriate materials, how to intervene successfully, and how to plan for group intervention.
We will discuss evidenced-based practices for speech-language intervention that work virtually and in person. The participants will be able to explain the important role of teaching macrostructure, robust storytelling, and phonological awareness tasks that promote intelligible speech. Many school districts are advocating for flexible service delivery models that can quickly shift from in person to virtual learning with increased accountability for student engagement. Through the creation of google slides and PowerPoint presentations, speech-language pathologists can create a consistent routine and therapy plan so students and families always know what to expect.
Participants will be able to:
• Identify intervention 3 evidenced-based intervention routines that can easily shift from in-person learning to teletherapy
• Conduct literacy-based intervention using teletherapy
• Measure client’s progress towards goals using teletherapy
• Utilize interactive technology tools to increase client and family engagement
