A Message From Your Seminar Leader
As a practicing school-based speech-language pathologist I sometimes feel inundated with expectations that seem to be continually added to my workload and expected areas of expertise. Reading, writing, state academic standards, differentiation â€“ and now technology, too. It is difficult to ignore that our students are incredibly motivated by the immediate feedback of it, not to mention the cool audio and video features that cutting-edge technology has the potential to help our students make greater therapy gains, as well as increasing social and academic progress. Are you looking for reasonable, timesaving ways to combine the best of the tried-and-true therapy strategies with the new-and-innovative technology tools to increase the impact of your therapy?
It has been my quest for the past several years to incorporate the best-of-the-best, research-based therapy strategies and activities that some of us call “old school” and combining them with cool technology tools and resources to increase the impact of my therapy interventions and my students’ success in the classroom.
I am excited to share practical, timesaving and evidence-based ideas with you and address the smooth and seamless integration of the “old” with the “new” and how this combination can help you better serve your students with speech and language disorders.
I look forward to meeting you at the seminar!
