Webinar Event: Speech vs Language Development
27 February 2020 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm AESTFree
By the time students begin school they should have appropriate language and speech skills that will enable them to communicate their thoughts and ideas, understand information and engage within a range of social contexts. For some students they may continue to require support to develop their communication skills as they commence school. Students may require support to develop their expressive language, receptive language, pragmatic language skills and speech sound development. The following webinar will aim to provide further information and knowledge regarding language and speech development and provide staff working in schools’ strategies to help identify and support student’s language and speech development.
The key learning objectives addressed in this webinar include:
- Develop an understanding of language and speech development.
- Understand the differences in language and speech sound development.
- Develop strategies to help identify language and speech difficulties in the classroom.
- Develop strategies to support students with speech and language difficulties in the classroom.
