Cheryl’s third one day workshop will focus on receptive and expressive spoken language. Participants will learn how to identify a student’s level of functional spoken language. Cheryl will also explain why the link between receptive language and auditory memory is important for expressive spoken language. Participants are expected to bring a student’s case file on the day for analysis and discussion. This information will help to identify their spoken language development and to plan proactive classroom strategies.
