This workshop will give SLPs an overview of the programs, tools and perspectives of other key literacy professionals and current trends in instruction. This will include information about the evidence (or lack thereof) for various approaches. In addition, this workshop will provide a model for how to share information with school professionals about how spoken language impacts written language and why this information is crucial for anyone teaching children to read.

Presenter: Margo Kinzer Courter, MBA, MA, CCC-SLP, BCS-CL
We, as speech-language pathologists, often question our role in literacy and dyslexia. From Every Student Succeeds Act, state legislation, to state education standards, we play an integral role. This course will define each of those areas where we have expertise within our domains of language and provide some therapy strategies to support speaking and listening to reading and writing.
October 25, 12:30am PDT - Literacy Conference Pt. 3: Spelling: Why SLPs Need to Add it to Their Already Overflowing Plates (.2 ASHA CEUs)
Presenter: Emily J.M. Ciesielski, MS, CCC-SLP
But they spelled it right on Friday’s test…
Spelling, just like reading and writing, is a function of language. SLPs have the needed linguistic background that spelling requires, but caseloads are already too high, we already wear too many hats. In this course, you will learn how spelling develops, what to do when it doesn’t, and why adding spelling to your plate may actually help you. Professional development and/or collaboration ideas will also be discussed.
