This workshop will provide an overview of the theoretical links between spoken and written language development and disorders, assessment of early language and literacy skills in preschool-age and young school-age children, and evidence-based strategies for intervention.
The workshop will consist of lecture style content (using case examples and video footage), as well as interactive discussion, and hands-on case-study activities. It will:
- Explain the theoretical links between spoken and written language disorders in preschool- and young school-age children.
- Provide an overview of the presenter’s research projects involving assessment and intervention targeting early language and literacy skills in children with autism and children from low socio-economic and culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.
- Provide participants with the opportunity to develop hypothesis-driven assessment plans, targeting oral language and (emergent) literacy in a) preschool children and b) young school-age children
- Provide participants with the opportunity to develop evidence-based, individualised or small-group intervention plans for targeting oral language and (emergent) literacy in children from preschool to early school-age.
