An update on the current evidence base for intervention for school-aged children with language disorders. It will focus predominantly on the effectiveness of different methods of service delivery, comprehension and production at the word (vocabulary and word-finding), sentence (sentence construction and comprehension of sentences) and narrative level. It does not focus on articulation, phonology, literacy, phonological awareness, pragmatics or social skills.
A day for speech and language therapists and other interested professionals to reflect on their own practice in the light of the evidence presented and to consider what changes they may wish to make as a result.
Dr Susan Ebbels is Highly Specialist Speech and Language Therapist and Director of the Research and Training Institute at Moor House School & College. She devised the Shape Coding™ system to help school-aged children with language disorders improve their understanding and production of English grammar. Susan has carried out many intervention studies and is former editor of the International Journal of Language and Communication Disorders, is on the editorial board of Child Language Teaching and Therapy and acts as a specialist advisor to the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists.
The day includes a 2-course lunch, a comprehensive pack of handouts and certification for CPD purposes.
