Vocabulary Assessment & Intervention: Applying the EvidenceBrief Course Description: Poor vocabulary development is a hallmark of communication disabilities and language disorders. It is also a critical element of learning to read and a common core state standard in every subject area, in every grade level, in every state. Using both direct and indirect methods that are supported by evidence-based practice (EBP) and research, we can make lasting improvements in word learning and comprehension. Specific techniques in vocabulary therapy will be demonstrated for a wide range of students with mild to moderate language disorders, autism spectrum disorders, and intellectual disabilities.
