Location: Room 307

This session is eligible for Pennsylvania Act 48 professional education hours.

Many school-based SLPs are asked to address and measure students’ progress toward meeting Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and/or state-specific standards in addition to being held accountable for identifying and meeting IEP goals. This session will provide participants with functional strategies to help elementary-age students build a vigorous vocabulary aligned with the CCSS/state standards for K-2nd grade. The speaker will also identify techniques for establishing baselines and monitoring progress.
