Course Info

This practical course is the continuation of the ‘Oral language comprehension interventions in children and adolescents with language disorders or difficulties workshop. It deepens the insight of oral language comprehension interventions and provides information on new therapy techniques. The course is meant for speech and language therapists who work with children. Participating in the ‘Oral language comprehension interventions in children and adolescents with language disorders or difficulties workshop is a prerequisite to attending this course.

During this course, we will discuss whether the difference between receptive and expressive developmental language disorder is qualitative or quantitative. It will be discussed how the connection between expressive and receptive language should be addressed in the intervention and in the choice of therapy techniques. The main content of the day is the interventions for oral language comprehension interventions, their efficacy, and level of evidence. Also, it will be discussed what can be said about the order of enhancing oral language comprehension skills. The insights gained during the day will be transferred into clinical practice by incorporating knowledge on therapy techniques for one’s own client. Each participant is therefore asked to bring one client case with them. The necessary information is age, short anamnesis, linguistic difficulties, and their effect on everyday life.

The courses are given by Sirpa Tarvainen, MA, speech and language therapist and Ph.D. candidate at the University of Helsinki. The content of this course is based on her ongoing dissertation. This is combined with other literature on the matter and her experience as an SLT in clinical practice.

The price of the workshop is €269 /£245 / SEK2789 / NOK2876 (including VAT 24%). Digital workshop material is included.
