Bilingual Language Intervention Utilizing Leveled Storybooks

# e71   Bilingual Language Intervention Utilizing Leveled Storybooks

by Ana Paula Mumy, MS, CCC-SLP

0.2 CEUs

$ 39.00

SLPs are seeing a growing number of bilingual students on their caseloads. This interactive course discusses strategies to more effectively implement speech and language interventions with bilingual students.  Specifically this courses focuses on the use of leveled storybooks as an effective and versatile tool for speech and language intervention in early childhood (toddlers, preschoolers, and lower elementary children).

Though the focus of this course is not literacy but language, the underlying canvas of the course is the inseparable and reciprocal link between language and literacy, how one cultivates the other, and how both are necessary for social and academic success in children. The target population addressed is the rising Latino population, though the ideas and principles presented can be applied to other bilingual populations encountered. Offered for 0.2 SLP CEUs – 2 contact hours.

ASHA CEUs: NSS online courses are registered with ASHA and are offered for ASHA CEUs. The number of CEUs is noted above. Note that 0.1 CEU = 1 contact hour = equals 1 CEE.

Licensing Boards: Most state licensing boards DO accept CEUs earned online (usually classified as home-study credits). Some state boards do, however, place a limit to the number of credits that can be earned via home study/online courses.
