Abstract:
Another “sequel” to this presentation with installments at ASHA 2012-2015 brings all-new pairings of picture books and inexpensive, easy-to use apps with suggestions for interventions. The presentation provides research-supported strategies for contextual language therapy, blending picture books with apps for visual, interactive, and curriculum-related post-reading activities targeting specific objectives.

Speech-Language Pathology Topic Area: Language and Learning in School-Age Children and Adolescents
Learner Outcomes:
Learner Outcome 1: Identify 3 picture books with intervention-related language structures and contexts within text and illustrations
Learner Outcome 2: Evaluate 3 apps for key features indicating applicability in language interventions

Learner Outcome 3: Describe session plans pairing books and apps based on contextual congruence

To be honest, doing a tech presentation as a poster is not ideal, but I did my best to translate this topic into a visual format. Come check it out and I will also be providing a link to the previous 4 years of book and app pairings...a trove of ideas!

Abstract:
Utilizing technology to co-create contextual materials within telepractice or in-person therapies facilitates engagement and additional opportunities to practice targeted language and literacy skills. This presentation demonstrates examples of integrating routines with authentic materials for preschool to secondary students to maximize outcomes. Participants will leave with resources and ideas for implementation.

Session Chair: N/A
General Interest Topic Area: Telepractice
Learner Outcomes:
Learner Outcome 1: List three types of language and literacy routines for use in telepractice sessions
Learner Outcome 2: Describe three engagement techniques to support language and literacy activities in telepractice sessions
Learner Outcome 3: State four app and web-based resources that can support language and literacy skills within telepractice

I do in-person therapy, but as a tech specialist have had a wonderful collaboration with the experts at Waldo Country General in Maine. I loved working with Amy and Nathan on this presentation. Note that the ideas discussed and apps, websites, and clinical routines demonstrated will be applicable to in-person therapy as well...
