ESC-20 provides training, technical support, resources and information about speech therapy for students who have communication disorders.

Use of Quality Data to Drive Instruction

Important Session Information:

Effective literacy-based intervention approaches maximize schedules and treatment outcomes, support the general education curriculum and provide a functional means to support educational performance and daily living activities. Participants will walk away energized with information and specific strategies for speech and language intervention.

Learning Objectives - Participants will be able to:

  • Identify benefits of using storybooks in intervention for culturally and linguistically diverse populations.
  • Implement strategies to reduce therapy planning using storybooks, classroom resources, and academic topics.
  • Describe the use of literacy-based interventions to support access to the general education curriculum in the least restrictive environment.
  • Develop a plan to implement curriculum-based intervention to align with the specific teacher goals.

Handouts will be provided electronically 1-2 days prior to the workshop.  Please bring a device or a printed copy to interact with the handouts during the presentation.
