SLPs have noticed a renewed interest in the schools toward vocabulary power, word consciousness, comprehension and
academic language for students. Spurred on by the Common Core State Standards, the link between the classroom and the speech/language session is stronger than ever. Join us for a day packed with assessment and intervention strategies to address vocabulary needs for K-12th graders that will result in increased student skills in literate language and academic vocabulary.
