When: August 2, 2018 from 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. Central
Where: Zoom Webinar (recording available for purchase and for CEUs)
Join Pam Bazis from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln for this one-hour webinar. This presentation will provide an overview of the components involved in Take Flight and other Orton-Gillingham code based reading instruction methods. Then we will look at why those components are effective in learning to read based on research and theory into reading instruction and how the brain processes information. Finally, we will link those components with the characteristics of dyslexia (most common areas of deficit and strength) to create the whole picture. Leave with an understanding that it is not just about the name of a program in general, but instead the key components of instruction necessary to master the complex skills needed to read.
This webinar is offered for up to 0.1 American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) CEUs.
Discuss direct and indirect effects of Diabetes Mellitus (DM) on auditory function and the importance of early identification in prevention and treatment of hearing loss.
Connect with audiologists, speech-language pathologists and students; implement new ideas and practices learned during education sessions in tracks for audiologists, speech-language pathologists and students; recognize the accomplishments of your peers; and receive an update on how your state association is advocating for and serving you.
NSLHA's vision is to be the leading voice and partner in promoting speech, language, hearing, balance, swallowing and related disorders in Nebraska, and to be an expert in advocating for the rights and interests of persons with communication disorders. Join or renew your membership today.
A major role that state associations play is as an advocacy organization. Associations monitor proposed legislation, identify bills that may have a positive or negative impact on the field of communication sciences and disorders and the individuals we serve, and develop advocacy agendas to address those bills. A large unified voice such as a state association can be key to successful advocacy.
