Uploaded: November 5, 2014 |  0 Comments  | 

The increasing numbers of American children today who experience poverty and homelessness make it imperative that school personnel meet their unique needs. Many times, these students display decreased language and executive functioning skills that are related to their low socioeconomic status. They may have potential or actual language impairments. This workshop describes factors that impact these low-SES students, and details practical assessment and intervention strategies for increasing their oral and literate language as well as their executive functioning skills. Connecting intervention with the PA Academic Standards is emphasized.
