A webinar from AUCD’s Early Intervention/ Early Childhood Special Interest Group
Speaker: Ann Kaiser, Ph.D., Professor of Special Education; Susan Gray Chair in Education and Human Development; Professor of Psychology, Peabody College; Vanderbilt Kennedy Center Investigator
Although parents are children’s first language teachers, parents of children with significant communication impairment benefit from systematic training to support their children’s language development. This presentation will: (a) provide a brief overview of the evidence base for parent-implemented communication intervention; (b) describe the naturalistic language support strategies that parents have been taught to support their children’s communication development; and (c) discuss approaches to teaching parents. The KidTalk model of early communication support which includes parents as partners in intervention will be presented.
There is no cost for this webinar. The visual portion of the webinar will be conducted via GoToMeeting and the audio portion via telephone or VoIP (requires microphone and speakers). After registration you will be given a unique web address for viewing the webinar and audio information.
This Webinar is in part made possible with support from The Maternal and Child HealthBureau and the National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities at the CDC.
