Exploring Collaborative Roles for Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs) in Specific Learning Disabilities (SLD)/Dyslexia
*This is a one (1) day event - Friday, May 19, 2017
Audience: Elementary: Speech and Language Pathologists
Presenter: Donna Merritt, Ph.D., CCC, SERC Consultant
A student’s planning and placement team (PPT) needs the expertise of many school professionals, including speech-language pathologists (SLPs), to appropriately identify a Specific Learning Disability (SLD)/Dyslexia and to implement specially designed structured literacy interventions.
In this roundtable colloquium, SLPs will review the components of structured literacy and then access the resources of SERC’s Library to examine speech and language assessment tools that inform the SLD/Dyslexia comprehensive evaluation process. Subsequently, they will investigate research-based practices that support collaborative and consultative language-literacy interventions.
SLPs participating in this professional learning opportunity will self-assess their collaborative PPT role in the identification of SLD/Dyslexia; expand their repertoire of assessment tools; and support language-literacy instruction for students with SLD/Dyslexia via collaboration and consultation.
