Practical Tips for Planning Effective and Engaging Therapy
SLPs are often overwhelmed when it comes to tracking session data and using that data to implement engaging and effective therapy plans. Strategies will be shared for SLPs to efficiently track data and to make data-based decisions when planning for therapy.
Introduction to Curriculum-Based Therapy
Have you ever had students who demonstrated mastery of a skill in the therapy room but failed to generalize to the classroom? In this course, participants will learn about curriculum-based therapy and how it can facilitate meaningful and functional outcomes for our students. Participants will be presented with tools and strategies to easily implement this type of therapy with their caseloads.
Introduction to Literacy-Based Therapy

Participants will be presented with strategies to select high-quality books and to use those books when targeting a variety of speech and language goals. Relevant evidence and practical demonstrations will be provided to show SLPs how they can implement evidence-based strategies when targeting goals using literature.
Strategies for Grammar Intervention
