MAXIMISING THE EFFECTIVENESS AND EFFICIENCY OF INDIVIDUALISED INTERVENTION FOR VOCABULARY AND GRAMMAR
Language intervention requires commitment from children, families, schools, clinicians and funders. Therefore, maximising intervention effectiveness and efficiency is vital. This involves maximising progress while minimising time. Time-related aspects of intervention delivery might be centrally determined, but clinicians generally have control over intervention targets, steps, techniques and within session dosage.
Dr Ebbels will present her teams intervention studies for vocabulary and grammar with young people with DLD, particularly considering the potential influence of intervention targets, techniques, dosage and time in intervention on outcomes and generalisation. The keynote will consider which aspects of intervention appear to be the more important and where we can be more flexible.
Dr Susan Ebbel’s BioGRAPHY:
Dr Susan Ebbels is a Speech & Language Therapist and Director of Moor House Research and Training Institute at Moor House School & College, Surrey, UK, a specialist school for children with DLD aged 7-19. She is on the editorial boards of International Journal of Language and Communication Disorders and Child Language Teaching and Therapy. She has an honorary lectureship at UCL and is also a specialist advisor for Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists.
She is passionate about the need for evidence-based practice and has carried out and coordinated many intervention studies on a range of areas, but with a particular focus on improving the comprehension and production of grammar in children with language disorders using her SHAPE CODINGTM system.
