Incorporating Technology Into the Speech Therapy Room
August 14 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
This webinar is designed to ensure therapists will be able to walk away with a variety of ways to use technology to target a wide variety of communication skills, whether in the school, private practice or clinic setting. New and veteran speech-language pathologists (SLP) will benefit from this webinar.
Many SLPs working with school-aged children do not realize the amount of therapy activities that can be designed around various forms of technology. The presenter will choose a variety of free websites available on the Internet and systematically address practical ways to use each one to target different areas of communication (articulation, language and pragmatics). All of the suggested therapy ideas will be direct, evidence-based, related to common core, interactive and engaging. Participants will walk away with practical therapy ideas they can use the very next day. They will also have the framework necessary to design their own ideas using websites and technology tools they find themselves. Participants will have an understanding of the importance of providing engaging, evidence- based and interactive activities with school-aged children.
After completing this course, participants will be able to identify websites that can be used in therapy, describe how websites can be used and explain how to target multiple Individualized Education Program goals using websites and technology tools available
