May Talks on Tuesday banner



Join us for Part II of our continuing discussion which began with our March Talks on Tuesday. If you were not able to join us for that webinar, it may be very helpful to first review the archived webinar on the Virginia Early Intervention Professional Development Center website. Our May Talks on Tuesday will begin with a brief review of assessment and diagnostic considerations related to articulation and phonology. The most effective ways to determine and write functional outcomes that focus on the communication needs of the child, while incorporating speech sound development, will be presented and discussed.  Strategies to facilitate natural speech sound development within everyday activities and routines will be also discussed. Personal anecdotes will be shared to provide participants with clear examples of outcomes and strategies.
