Practical Solutions for Improving Speech and Communication in Students with Ds  

As a pediatric SLP and parent of a child with Down syndrome, I have a unique opportunity and perspective. Have you wondered why speech is so difficult for your student/child? Why they seem to know or understand something one day but not at a later date? Have you considered how memory and processing affect language learning and use? Are negative Behaviors impeding progress? This presentation will highlight:

  • Typical learning profile for student with Down syndrome
  • Language supports and strategies
  • Identify ways memory directly impacts language and learning
  • Speech therapy considerations and techniques
  • Interventions which prevent negative behaviors
  • Language considerations when adapting curriculum
  • Language facilitation strategies that can be used across all environments
