From Evaluation to Therapy A School-based SLP’s Guide to Treating the Unintelligible Student

Course Abstract:

This webinar covered the challenges that school-based Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs) encounter with students who have speech sound disorders, including childhood apraxia of speech. School-based SLPs have to be expert generalists in all communication areas, are knowledgeable in the legal framework of IEP meetings, and possess counseling skills to deal with parents and students. At times, our jobs can be just overwhelming! This webinar provided a framework for how to recognize characteristics of CAS, evaluate, differentially diagnose, and treat multiple areas of students who cannot be understood by their teachers, peers, and school staff.
