When a late talking toddler or preschool child requires intervention, there is considerable variation in symptomatology. Therefore, a “one size fits all” intervention approach is not effective. Treatment can focus on any of a number of features seen in late onset of talking, including speech disorder, language disorder or even more severe conditions such as autism spectrum disorder (ASD) or Intellectual Disability. This course will provide information on how to individualize intervention for late talking toddlers and preschoolers.
- After this course, participants will be able to identify the primary conditions associated with late talking children.
- After this course, participants will be able to describe how to adapt intervention based on a child's communication needs.
- After this course, participants will be able to explain the importance of parent support and engaging family in treatment plans.
