Webinar: Teaching Narrative Language and Discourse
|Date||Tuesday, February 21st, 2017|
|Time||3:00pm to 4:30pm|
|Location||Distance Learning via GoToWebinar|
This 90 minute webinar will dive into the assessment and treatment of impairments in discourse and narrative language in school age children. Difficulty with oral narration is frequent, even in children whose oral language is unimpaired at the sentence level. This can impact academic achievement and writing, social interactions, and even overall quality of life. This webinar will look at important background information on prevalence and consequences of impaired discourse, will look at the importance of different genres of discourse (e.g., procedural, personal, fiction, expository, conversation), and how to assess discourse. Treatment options will be discussed, including existing curricula and individualized literature-based intervention.

By far, I have never taken another course that stands up to the instruction I received during my Orton-Gillingham training in the summer. I cannot speak highly enough of the instructors I have had over the course of two years.
