Strategy-Based Interventions for the School-Age Child

# e84   Strategy-Based Interventions for the School-Age Child

by Ruthann Jarvis, MA, CCC-SLP & Elizabeth Peterson, MA, CCC-SLP

0.6 CEUs

$ 99.00

~ Training & Materials ~

With growing and diversifying caseloads, SLPs are increasingly challenged to make meaningful therapy progress with each student.  This course was designed by two school-based SLPs for SLPs who are seeking practical, functional, and easy-to-implement strategies to target articulation, language, grammar, organizing thoughts, inferring and reasoning, written language, attention, fluency awareness, eye contact and more. Offered for 0.6 ASHA CEUs – 6 contact hours.

Specifically, participants will learn the SOS formula – Strategies Offer Solutions – which uses three, short directions grouped into a SOS mnemonic to successfully develop quick and easy strategies to target speech and language deficits. Included will be evidence-based strategies incorporating highly effective visual, auditory, kinesthetic and tactile cues. Strategies will be presented that are effective in whole-class, small-group, and individual therapy settings. You will also learn to create individualized strategies for a unique student need. Learn to use SOS to:

  • Seek what you really want from a student
  • Outline and organize strategies that get you what you want
  • Set up instruction using the DOES Delivery Model

Participants will learn to implement SOS's unique DOES Delivery Model to enable students to grow from a dependent stage of being constantly prompted What to do to a higher level of success where the student "DOES" the desired behavior with more independence and less cueing or prompting. Learn how SOS strategies can be used with students with varying disorders to:

  • Group students with varying skills and goals without sacrificing the progress of each student. 
  • Motivate students to take responsibility for their treatment goals.
  • Write goals and objectives specific to targeted strategies.
  • Achieve greater teacher and parent support.
  • Incorporate core curriculum.
  • Monitor progress.

Includes over 470 reproducible materials focused on:

  • Language & Cognition (258 pages)
    • Processing Information
    • Organizing Thoughts
    • Expanding Vocabulary
    • Grammar
    • Social Conversation
    • Eye Contact
    • Attention
    • Remembering
    • Inferring and Reasoning
    • Problem Solving
  • Speech, Fluency & Voice (198 pages)
    • Intelligibility
    • Speech Production of Specific Sounds
    • Fluency Awareness
    • Fluency Techniques
    • A Healthy Voice
    • Vocal Quality
  • Extra Handouts (18 pages)



Content Disclosure: This presentation will focus exclusively on SOS – Strategies Offer Solutions – interventions. Other treatment approaches will receive limited or no coverage as part of this course. Presenter financial and non-financial disclosures may be found by clicking on the Presenter & Disclosures tab.
Course Format: Video PowerPoint presentation with author narration & downloadable handout.

At eCourse conclusion, participants will be able to:

  1. Use and create easy, three-strategy mnemonics to meet speech, voice, fluency, language and cognitive needs of school-age children.
  2. Explain how SOS and its DOES Delivery Model can help meet core curriculum standards.
  3. Learn to write strategy-based goals that complement core curriculum standards.
  4. Learn a delivery model that increases the effectiveness and use of strategies taught to students.
  5. Explain how this model offers an evidence-based program to students.
  6. State how using therapy-based instruction can decrease frequency of sessions and reduce caseload management issues.
  7. Explain how using this model allows for effectively grouping students with different skills and goals.
  8. Discuss how this model encourages teacher and parent support for follow through on strategies taught to achieve goals more quickly.
  9. Create a caseload and workday around the SOS DOES Delivery Model requiring little to no preparation time.

A score of 80% or better must be received on the post-test in order
to receive a certificate of completion.
