#e274 Academic Language And How To Teach It
Trina Spencer, PhD, BCBA-D
This course takes a deep dive into academic language and how to teach it in meaningful contexts. Only 12% of students with language disabilities meet grade level expectations in reading and writing. When SLPs concentrate their language intervention on the dimensions of academic language—namely vocabulary, discourse structures, complex sentences, morphology, and inferencing—more students achieve academic expectations.
