COURSE DESCRIPTION
As early at 4 months old, the ability to hold a sound trace, recognize an acoustic pattern, actively attend to and sequence units of sounds in Phonological Short- term Working Memory (PSTM) is the key to achieving optimum development in communication and literacy, whether the goal is primary prevention, facilitating normal development, or assessment and therapy for children with communication or learning disorders. To understand the complex integrative processes involved in listening, talking, learning and literacy, this webinar will utilize the Cognitive and Communication processing model (Banigan,2011), a valuable tool for parents and professionals to identify a child’s unique brain function required for optimum progress in all learning. In addition, this webinar will provide a concept of cognitive and communication processing, diagnostic and therapeutic strategies as well as research and case samples so participants can train the PSTM process as a driving force to achieving optimum progress in communication and literacy.
