Welcome to Literacy-Based Intervention: Step-by-step

Successfully Use Storybooks to Reduce Planning Time, Easily Work in Groups, and Target Multiple Communication and Academic Goals

Fun, fast, effective therapy is only a few hours away.

The content in this course has been presented to hundreds of speech pathologists throughout the United States in full-day seminars.  We know what professionals liked, what they thought was useful, and what information they needed to make a dramatic impact on their workload and caseload.  We boiled all of the essential information down to this 3 1/2 course.

More than anything, we can’t tell you how much fun literacy-based intervention will be for you and the students you work with.  Enjoyable and Research-based?  Not possible you say!  Well grab a cup of tea, have a seat, and lean in.  We are about to tell you a story about how speech-pathologists are waking back up to the reasons they joined the field in the first place.

Here is the process:

  • Click on the lesson links below.
  • Each lesson has a video accompanied by handouts and related materials to be used for therapy.
  • Lessons can be taken in any order. But there is a logical order to the course.  We start with the research and fun cultural pieces and then work are way through pre-, during-, and post-storybook activities.
  • At the end of all the lessons you will take a short quiz.
  • Once all of the lessons and quiz is complete you will receive your certificate.

 If you have any questions you can contact me at any time!
