Practical Interventions to Improve Independent Executive Function Skills

We Heart IEPs and You Will Too!
Sarah Bevier & Lisa Kathman (SLP Toolkit)
No one enjoys writing IEPs. We have a lot of them to write and they are time consuming. What if we told you it doesn’t have to be such a painful experience? School-based SLPs often look at writing IEPs as just another paperwork task, when in fact it’s one of the most important things done for students each year. Participants will learn a systematic way to get a comprehensive strengths and needs profile for the Present Levels section of the IEP, eliminating the guesswork and anxiety that can happen when writing IEPs. Participants will also gain strategies to use a visual framework for mapping out how to best meet identified needs, whether that be through specially designed instruction with the SLP or general education accommodations.

5pm PST/8pm EST (1 hour)

Keep Your Students Motivated With Videos
Hallie Sherman (Speech Time Fun)
Many SLPs working with school-aged children do not realize the amount of therapy activities that can be designed around videos. The presenter will choose a variety of videos that can be found on You Tube and systematically address practical ways to use each one to target different areas of communication (articulation, language, and pragmatics). All of the suggested therapy ideas will be direct, evidence-based, related to common core, interactive, and engaging. Participants will walk away with practical therapy ideas they can use the very next day. They will have suggested activities for targeting all areas of communication. They will also have the framework necessary to design their own ideas using videos they find themselves. Participants will have an understanding of the importance of providing engaging, evidence-based, and interactive activities with school-aged children.

How to Treat Speech, Language and Literacy Goals with Little Stories from Little Bee Speech
Heidi Hanks (Little Bee Speech)
As Speech-Language Pathologists it is our job to treat speech, language and literacy goals but with so many students and so little time it can be a daunting task. In this presentation, you will learn how to do just that using the Little Stories app. With activities like a reading fluency test, story retell, sequencing, WH questions and story talk students can improve their receptive and expressive language as well as reading fluency and comprehension.

5pm PST/8pm EST (1 hour)

Fun and Functional Language Instruction for Early Learners with Autism

Evidenced based strategies to utilize when working to help increase a student’s language level will be discussed. Assessment, Data Collection and Intervention will be addressed specifically. Pictures and video will be used to illustrate these points.
