Special Considerations in LSL Intervention 2020

Experience Overview

Listening and Spoken Language Strategies are very effective in helping to promote listening skill, speech, and spoken language development. However, not all children are the same and many children have different stories that may impact their language journey. Listening and Spoken Language strategies and a listening and spoken language approach may still be appropriate and effective for children with alternate histories. In this 4 week course, participants will learn special considerations for listening and spoken language for children who use multiple languages or a language that is not the majority language spoken in the community, children who are older new listeners, children with concurrent diagnoses, and specifically children with hearing loss who also are diagnosed with autism or auditory neuropathy.
