Planning Therapy and Measuring Outcomes for Children with DLD

Children with Developmental Language Disorder (DLD) can have difficulties with some or all areas of language, including syntax, morphology, semantics, word finding, pragmatics, discourse and phonology.  Each child will present with strengths and areas of need, which requires an individualised approach. But how do you know if your therapy is working? This self-paced, on-demand short course will address decision making about where to start with goal setting and how to measure outcomes, so you know when the goal is achieved, and when it is time to start something new.


Time to complete: Approximately 1.5 hours

Course Format: 1 x 1.5 hour video recording of a previous live webinar. Your registration fee provides you with 12 months access to this course.

Benefits of on demand, self-paced study: You can stop and start or circle back on a section easily from anywhere in the world 24/7. Your registration fee provides you with 12 months access to this course so you have plenty of time to complete it.

    Thank you Shaun for this PL which has been helpful in terms of better analysing/categorising/valuing outcome measures I am already using and also explaining how I could use a scaled rating for my goals. Kind regards, Kate
