great ideas
Great Ideas
  • Group Discussion

Generate at least 3 “great ideas” to report out…(i.e. service delivery,

data collection, scheduling, team process, intervention,

organizational or time-saving tips, etc.)

-Scheduling (block schedule arranged in June with principal- grade levels not in specials during a block of time. Service delivery-Reading Street- pull out. Vs. push-in…teacher/principal influence). Start small- K scheduling success)

  • Targeting vocabulary-6 minute solution, students unable to read words they don’t know. Vocab exercises targeting specific words.
  • -Reading Street- vocabulary targeted during intervention
  • -Increasing active engagement-students graphing progress on graphs in speech folders. Where am I now..want to be next month…

(staff, administration, parents, etc.)

    • These statements/ideas should be concise and designed to capture the interest and intrigue of others
    • The focus should be on ways in which to describe, define, expand our roles and demonstrate areas of SLP skill sets

progress monitoring tool for listening comprehension and oral expression
Progress Monitoring Tool for Listening Comprehension and Oral Expression
  • Wendy Robinson, Assistant Director of Professional Development, Heartland AEA 11, “Response to Intervention for Curriculum-Based Language Concerns”
  • Rationale for curriculum based evaluation (Language)
    • Assessment should include language beyond the sentence level
    • Assessment should focus on what to teach and how to teach to improve academic outcomes for students
    • Assessment should link to successful strategies or teaching recommendations
    • Assessment should be as close to student’s age/grade and current curriculum level as possible
why is it important
Why is it important
  • Oral language skills are the foundation of literacy skills. The competency of a student’s language skills typically determine the competency of a student’s reading and writing skills…Wendy Robinson
  • The attainment of literacy skills is critical for academic and life success
  • 60-70% of preschool children with communication concerns are at-risk for literacy failure by grade two
  • Language and communication skills are considered the “hidden curriculum” in most schools (the common core has speaking and listening standards)
