Learning objectives

Supporting adolescent clients with oral and written language difficulties can be challenging! This highly interactive workshop will address how we can provide evidence-based services that are both therapeutically effective as well as being engaging and personally meaningful for these clients.

Upon successful completion of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Better understand the many aspects of oral and written language difficulties experienced by adolescent clients, and the impact on their personal and academic development.
  • Consider a range of both formal and informal language assessment tools, their relevance for use with this age-group, as well as gaps in availability and what we can do in these instances.
  • Consider the range of service delivery models that are available to SLPs, and in what circumstances each approach may be utilised effectively.
  • Develop a range of effective oral and written language intervention resources for immediate use with adolescent clients. These will include evidence-based and clinical best practice strategies to support clients’ vocabulary skills, written expression and reading comprehension. 

Who should attend?

This workshop is relevant for speech pathologists regardless of experience.
Speech Pathology students who have undertaken relevant lectures/coursework/clinical placements in Developmental Language Disorder/Language Disorder are welcome to attend.
