Students with language impairments may have challenges within the school setting, often struggling with learning content material, organizational skills, and socialization. In this course, receptive language impairment, expressive language impairment, auditory processing disorder, and aphasia will be defined and discussed. Classroom strategies will be reviewed. In addition, the social-emotional effects of language impairment on school-age children will be analyzed. At the conclusion of this course, participants will have the knowledge of strategies for supportive education of students with language impairments within their school setting. This course is applicable to all educators, guidance counselors/social workers/psychologists, administrators, and any related service providers of all subjects, grades K-12.
