A Message From Your Seminar Leader

Dear Colleague:

Throughout the years, I’ve asked my language students, “Do you like words?” Most of them said, “No.” But there we were, in therapy, in some manner or form, working on words. After a fashion I finally realized I had stumbled into the heart of the matter: Most of us are not motivated to learn and remember things we don’t like or things we don’t understand.

In therapy, I’ve made elevating words my focus; instilling desire in my students to become word-watchers, language-lovers and enjoy the pursuit of words, both inside the therapy room and out. In this seminar, I will share practical, effective and time-efficient strategies, research-based procedures, and systematic approaches to teaching vocabulary, oral language and literacy. To that end, we’ll explore fun and engaging narrative instruction methods.

I think you and your students will like this type of therapy. It has built-in motivation, reduces planning time (and angst over what to do!) and is easy to organize and develop continuity from session to session. I’ll share detailed, step-by-step practical and beneficial strategies – methods that really work, methods you can implement immediately and methods that will save you time.

I look forward to meeting you at the seminar!

Char Boshart, MA, CCC-SLP
