This webinar explores the foundational theory and key components of a language-based literacy model to guide assessment and intervention for adolescents who struggle with language and/or literacy development. The speaker discusses a multilinguistic literacy approach—i.e., a focus of explicit reflection on the foundational skills of sounds (phonology), letters (orthography), meaning (morphology), vocabulary (semantics), and grammar (syntax) in the context of written language. The webinar discusses variations of this type of language-focused literacy approach to improve the literacy skills of adolescents at risk for and diagnosed with developmental language disorders, dyslexia, and reading comprehension and spelling deficits.

Learning Outcomes
You will be able to:

  • Explain language-based theoretical models of reading and writing
  • Describe the evidence to support multilinguistic literacy assessment and instruction for students with language and/or literacy deficits
  • Discuss ways to advocate for the SLP’s role in literacy assessment and instruction
