Intervention for ELLS with Language Impairment **

Presented by Celeste Roseberry-McKibbin, Ph.D. (6 Hours)

This workshop focuses on practical strategies and materials for bilingual and monolingual English-speaking clinicians who serve ELLs (English Language Learners) with language impairments. The workshop’s contents will help clinicians who serve preschool and elementary students from any cultural-linguistic background. Participants will receive easy-to-implement, fun, effective ideas for helping ELL students who are learning English as well as coping with language impairments. The session will focus on increasing oral and written language skills and on collaborating with classroom teachers. Relating IEP benchmarks and therapy goals to Common Core State Standards will be reviewed.
