Auditory and Language Processing in Children and Adolescents: Best Practices in SLP Intervention
Presented by Gail Richard, Ph.D., Emeritus Professor in the Department of Communication Disorders and Science at Eastern Illinois University in Charleston, IL.
Processing is the ability to attach meaning to stimuli presented or received, to then formulate a response. Processing auditory information occurs on a continuum beginning with auditory processing and progressing to language processing. Accessory components include memory and word retrieval. Numerous children have difficulty efficiently and effectively processing auditory information. The disorder is subtle and usually occurs in the absence of other major disorders or specific language problems. Language processing can be identified through an identifiable pattern of symptomatic behaviors which can be observed by teachers and other school personnel in an educational setting. Once diagnosed, intervention to compensate for the deficits can alleviate frustration and confusion on the part of parents, students and teachers. this workshop will differentiate between auditory and language processing disorders and present techniques for assessment and intervention across the processing continuum.
