Vanderbilt SLP Journal Club: Precision Early Intervention: Matching Child Characteristics to Treatment

Course: #8698Level: Advanced1 Hour 130 Reviews

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.
