Five Practical Topics in Listening and Spoken Language Development
(Morning & Afternoon Session) Presented by Dave Sindrey, founder of the Listening Room
Experience Books are the Best Books
Learn to target meaningful receptive and expressive language through the use of home-made, custom-made books for
children. Many ideas will be shared with examples from actual Experience Books. Learn how to embed language targets
within engaging and meaningful home and school-based materials.
Strategies to Engage Parents as Partners
It is well accepted that parent commitment is a requisite for positive outcomes. A parent may need explicit teaching and
coaching to recognize the power of this level of involvement and then to realize it. Professionals working with the child at
school will benefit from the same strategies. This practical workshop presents strategies and materials designed to
empower and engage parents, caregivers and others involved in working closely with a child.
Engaging, Extending and Expanding on Excellent Apps
Apps are now a well-used and common tool in the SLP and TDHH toolkit. How can we use them to engage and stimulate
language and listening in the most powerful way? What are the pros and cons of different App features? Learn extension
and expansion activities for some of the presenter’s favorite apps released to date. Participants will be introduced to many
apps designed to promote vocabulary, listening and language and traditional books and materials that can be used in
conjunction with them.
Bilingual Done Right
Current research shows great gains for the multi-language learner. In Manitoba, many families are opting for their child to
learn to speak an additional language other than English. Learn which treatment models work and the strategies
professionals can use to promote families who choose a multi-language model.
Songs and Stories with Big Payoff
This session will focus on practical and fun songs, stories and listening activities that can go with them. Learn the best
strategies for parents and school-based professionals concerning song and story for their child or student. Participants will
learn the proven benefits of including music and singing. Participants will learn best practices for reading with and reading
to children in terms of literacy, listening and language.
Dave Sindrey’s session will include a “make and take” activity.
Understanding the Implications of Hearing Loss
(10:00 – 12:00) Presented by Cindy Neil and Taylor Hallenbeck
This session is for those new to Deaf and Hard of Hearing education. Participants will gain a basic understanding of
hearing loss and its effects through a variety of simulation activities. The workshop will also touch on classroom acoustics,
amplification systems, and communication considerations.
Educational Programming, Curriculum Adaptations & IEP’s for K-12
(1:00 – 4:00) Presented by Karen Graham and Verena Krueger
This session focuses on programming for students who are DHH in the K—12 setting. Strategies discussed will include
curriculum adaptations/modifications, implementing IEP goals and conducting tutorial sessions.
