Tatyana Elleseff, MA CCC-SLP, will present this two-day training that will provide in-depth information regarding effective assessment and treatment practices in speech-language pathology with an emphasis on literacy, executive functions, as well as contextualized evidence-based interventions. She will explain which areas of language and literacy need to be tested for assessment purposes, as well as which speech-language standardized and clinical tests and tasks are most sensitive to detecting language and literacy difficulties in children with literacy impairments. Popular educational tests (e.g., WIAT-4, WJ-IV, KTEA, and FAR) will be briefly discussed for performance comparison purposes. The presenter will describe both SLP therapy-specific and collaborative literacy-based management options available to SLPs in the area of literacy disorders management before moving on to the discussion of the executive functions in speech pathology.

The presenter will then explain how to provide effective evidence-based practice (EBP) language and literacy interventions to improve executive functioning in children with language and literacy deficits.

Learning Objectives:
1.Discuss the connection between language and literacy
2.Identify risk factors associated with language and literacy disorders
3.Describe both the definition and the controversy surrounding the term "dyslexia”
4.Explain which assessment tasks sensitive to detection of literacy-based deficits
5.Clarify the role of SLPs in the management of literacy disorders in both therapy and classroom settings
6.Describe executive functions (EFs) models and discuss the current research on the role of executive functions in language and literacy (reading, spelling and writing) acquisition
7.List EBP language and literacy-based interventions aimed at improving executive functions in school aged children
