The Speech Spot offers presentations and professional development for schools, parent groups, church organizations, homeschooling co-ops, and/or daycare settings looking to learn more about a variety of topics in the speech and language field. Current presentations we are offer include:
Preschool Speech and Language Development- this presentation includes a broad overview of what parents, teachers, and caregivers should be seeing develop in the early years of speech and language acquisition. We discuss milestones verses averages and why they make a difference. We provide participants with an understanding of what typical speech and language development milestones are and when to consider a referral to a speech-language pathologist. This presentation is ideal for preschools, parent groups of children ages 2-5, and any other groups working with this population.
Differential Diagnosis: ADHD, CAPD (Central Auditory Processing Disorder), or a Language Disorder?- this presentation is designed to help individuals differentiate between ADHD, CAPD, and a language disorder as they often present with similar features, but do in fact, have key marked differences. The presentation gives participants a better understanding of each diagnosis and how to support those who have been diagnosed across a variety of environments and settings. It also helps teachers, parents, and caregivers know when to make referrals for a diagnosis.
We are always adding to our presentation topic list and if you wish to submit a request for a presentation we are happy to consider your topic and discuss your groups specific needs.
