This webinar will describe how difficulties with understanding and producing language can impact children's performance in the classroom.

Presenter: Gloria Maccow, Ph.D.

Overview

In the school setting, we expect children to learn the skills and concepts that are identified as important for a specific grade level. Speech and language are essential components of the learning process. To receive and make sense of the information the teacher is presenting, children must understand words and sentences. To demonstrate that they have acquired the information, they must produce words to show that they can retrieve information from memory. This webinar will describe how difficulties with understanding and producing language can impact children's performance in the classroom.

  1. Describe the role of language in the learning process;
