Speech-Language Pathologist, Adjunct Lecturer at the University of Sydney
Did you know that at least 6 students in every primary and secondary classroom are facing significant challenges to their learning, and therefore to their ability to access the curriculum, because of diagnosed or un-diagnosed language, literacy and/or attention disorders? Did you also know that there are many adaptations and accommodations that all teachers can readily employ, that can facilitate these students’ ability to process and retain classroom information, and then express their knowledge and ideas effectively?
In this seminar you will be introduced to these students, the nature and impact of their learning difficulties, and, most importantly, to a wide range of strategies that can support their classroom learning. Specifically, we will be exploring the oral and written language of the classroom, and strategies for Direct Vocabulary Instruction across all grades and subjects.
Dr Julia Starling is a speech-language pathologist whose clinical and research interests focus in particular on primary and secondary students with language, literacy and attention difficulties. She regularly presents seminars across Australia and overseas, on collaborations between speech pathologists and teachers.
