Sponsored by Med-El and hosted by Clarke, with featured Speaker, David J. Ertmer, PhD, CCC-SLP. In this workshop, you will learn to recognize changes in prelinguistic vocalizations that indicate that hearing is actually guiding speech development. New tools for assessing early spoken language development will be shared and family-centered strategies for very young children will be explored. Finally, phonological development and the attainment of intelligible speech will be discussed with regards to recent research, new assessment tools, and intervention techniques.
