Linda Murphy, M.S., CCC-SLP – Join us as Linda teaches us about a speaking style called declarative language that can be naturally used within social interactions to encourage connection and learning across areas of perspective taking, flexible thinking, problem solving and experience sharing. Participants will also learn about a teaching process called Guided Participation, which uses co-regulation to create authentic partnerships between the teacher and student, therapist and client, or caregiver and child (of any age!)
***Reminder, if you attended the course with AEP Connections on June 27th, Part 1 and Part 2 of this series will not be new information. Part 3 and Part 4 WILL BE new information and intended to take you deeper in your knowledge and understanding.***
Each time we speak, we have the opportunity to choose our words. Speaking in a thoughtful way means that we are choosing words that will invite and empower individuals with social learning differences to feel connected, feel competent, and feel understood while learning and being guided outside their comfort zone. When we pause to think about what we say and how we say it, our learners in turn stop to think about what they say or do in response. In this course, participants will be shown a speaking style called declarative language that can be naturally used within social interactions to encourage connection and learning across areas of perspective taking, flexible thinking, problem solving and experience sharing.

Special Education teachers, Speech-Language Therapists, OTs, counselors, general education teachers, administrators, psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, PTs, principals, nurses, parents, and anyone who works with someone on the autism spectrum, ADHD, executive functioning difficulties, or other learning disabilities.
