This course will focus on assessment and instructional strategies that can be incorporated into the preschool classroom to decrease the need for direct speech and language services for culturally and linguistically diverse students (e.g., children considered to be at-risk, English Learners (EL)/multilingual children, children who speak a dialect of English, and undeserved students). Teachers and SLPs can collaborate to support language and literacy as well as play-based activities and social language within the classroom setting. Assessment and activities will focus on executive functioning, vocabulary, phonemic awareness, emerging reading, the development of play, and classroom strategies unique to culturally and linguistically diverse populations.
