About this Course

Children learn best when engaged in emotionally meaningful and natural interactions with play and learning partners.  When building communication skills, partners must balance functional skill-building using effective teaching strategies and interaction strategies that keep the child engaged and motivated.   Educators and therapy professionals have the added task of tracking performance and progress without taking away from the potency and naturalistic nature of the interaction.  Let’s explore some tips to help us keep these balls in the air with the child in the lead and having a blast! Handouts and resources accompany the content of this video course.

Learning Objectives
  • Briefly explore the research basis for naturalistic, child-led learning opportunities and apply this framework to speech and language intervention principles.  
  • Identify and discuss at least three strategies to help you embed speech and language targets within a variety of child-led play activities and routines.   
  • Explore teaching plans for common speech and language targets that include ideas for prompts/cues and suggestions for data collection methods.
