Young adults with mild-to-moderate language impairments and low emotional intelligence often struggle to perform independently in mainstream adult settings. This session from ASHA’s 2021 Schools Connect online conference discusses language and emotional intelligence skills that help post-secondary students achieve better quality-of-life outcomes. The speaker discusses strategies, activities, and resources that SLPs and their secondary students can use to improve outcomes. The session strives to reaffirm and refine SLPs’ capacity to make a positive societal impact by serving this student population.
You will be able to:
three emotional intelligence skills needed for success in employment,
post-secondary, and community settings

quality-of-life outcomes for young adults with language impairments
three resources, practical activities, strategies, and/or collaborative actions
SLPs can use to improve students’ career readiness and employability
