# e157   How To Collaborate With The Classroom Teacher To Improve Students’ Language Skills

by Jean Blosser, EdD, CCC-SLP

0.15 CEUs

$ 34.00

Training AND Materials

This course provides school-based speech-language pathologists with general methods for collaborating with the classroom teacher to improve communication skills in the classroom for children with speech and language disorders. Participants will learn 10 strategies that provide a framework for classroom teachers to modify their instruction to better support children with speech and language disorders. Participants will be guided to develop a personalized, customized action plan (CAP).

This brief course focuses on improving the partnership between the SLP and teacher. Empowering the teacher encourages them to be able to use the techniques that the SLP has identified as most appropriate for helping students.

The general methods discussed are based on best practices for service delivery, interprofessional collaboration, and education change. Course contents address solutions to challenges such as: (1) aligning intervention to curriculum standards; (2) mandates for better accountability and outcomes; (3) the increasing numbers of students with complex disabilities; (4) mandates for alternative approaches to service delivery; and (5) personnel shortages. Offered for 0.15 ASHA CEUs – 1.5 contact hours.

This course includes FREE downloadable materials for immediate implementation!
