Yesterday, myself, Abby Rozenberg and Timothy Kowalski, along with Jaumeiko Coleman, ex-officio (ASHA staff liaison) for SIG 16, participated in a FREE 2-hour-web chat moderated by Jill Straniero, entitled “Strategies for Serving Children with Language Impairment and Emotional/Behavioral Disorders“.
During the course of those two hours, we answered questions on a variety of topics pertaining to the assessment and intervention needs of children with diagnosed and suspected psychiatric disorders. Topics included: comorbidity of language and psychiatric impairments, the connection between behavior and communication, formal and informal social communication testing, the effect of self-regulation on language and behavior, and much much more. If you are interested in this topic or are working with children diagnosed with emotional and behavioral disturbances, please know that the complete transcript of this web chat is available HERE for FREE. Beyond the answers to a variety of presented questions, it contains links to resource websites, YouTube videos, blog posts, research articles, as well as informational groups on Facebook.
For those who were unable to participate in yesterday’s web chat, feel free to post your questions in the comments section below, and I will be happy to provide some assistance to you.
