Are you a speech-language pathologist working in preschool or early intervention? Are you at a loss for interactive activities to keep kids engaged in person or online? In this live interactive webinar, two experienced SLPs, Adrienne Wallace and Wendy Avolio, are teaming up to show you how they use theme-based intervention for FAST client gains!
Adrienne has developed themed lesson plans for toddlers that include a combination of digital materials and traditional toys, while Wendy bases her thematic units solely on physical toys and books. They have collaborated to share their successful evidence-based approach to promoting communication skills. Their themes include relevant vocabulary to support both professionals and families in eliciting receptive and expressive language skills.
The first part of this webinar will focus on the research that supports using themes to promote language development. Next, Adrienne and Wendy will each share their step-by-step approach to implement parent coaching, direct intervention and hybrid intervention models. There will be video demonstrations of themes in action in addition to live demonstrations of how to use select toys and materials, incorporate movement and sound, and utilize telepractice technology and techniques.
Participants will leave this presentation equipped with the knowledge and skills to begin implementing themes in their speech therapy practice immediately.
Once you start using theme-based intervention, not only will your clients experience notable success but you will also take the time and stress out of planning for your speech therapy sessions.
