Spring/Summer 2010 News and Events in the Department of Communication Disorders
The summer workshops at
FHSU were once again a great success. Thanks to all who attended and
participated. Pati King-DeBaun's presentation was titled "From Early
Engagement to Early Literacy Strategies for Children on the Autism
Spectrum." Participants learned a number of strategies to promote
language, communication and early literacy skills through story
supported readings. The second presenter was Linda Hodgdon, M.Ed.,
CCC-SLP whose presentation was titled, "Discovering the Possibilities
with Visual Strategies: Working with Autism and Related Challenges."
The final day was spent with Amy Finch, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, Dixie Teeter,
M.S., CCC-SLP, Katie Wheeler, M.S., and Jane Goetz, M.S. reviewing and
demonstrating a variety of visual supports and strategies. Each
participant had an opportunity to gain hands-on experience with common
tools (i.e., Power Point, Boardmaker, and Creative Suite) to create
visual strategies and supports.
