Course Syllabus

Language is made up of a variety of components including phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, and pragmatics. A disruption in any one of these five areas can have an impact on a child’s learning in the classroom. Do you have students in your classroom who have difficulty following a conversation, or difficulty executing commands you present? Children with impaired language may have difficulty with phonological awareness, following directions, expressing themselves using clear concise thoughts, vocabulary, and social skills. This course will enable participants working with children in elementary school through high-school to understand key components of a language disorder, how that may impact a child in the classroom, and what strategies can be used to assist with optimal learning in school.
