Episode 10: Tips and Tricks on How to Use a Multimodal Approach When Working with Children Who Have DLD; Featuring Shaun Ziegenfusz
Join me as I interview Shaun Ziegenfusz, a proud father of 2 and a speech-language pathologist from Australia, as he talks about his experience working with children who have a language disorder or a developmental language disorder. We talk about the Glenleighden Speech and Language School which is celebrating it's 40th anniversary this year. Shaun is also the manager for Research and Advocacy at Speech and Language Development Australia (SLDA). During this episode, we also talk about how some children who have DLD also have motor difficulties or other concomitant disorders. Some of Shaun's favorite resources/websites are:
Book: Making Sense of Interventions for Children with Developmental Disorders: A Guide for Parents and Professionals by Caroline Bowen and Pamela Snow:
We also talk about a great Human Rights video which underlines the importance of communication:
YouTube video: from the International Communication Program:
Last but not least, Shaun talks about a great article by Dorothy V.M. Bishop: Which Neurodevelopmental Disorders get Researched and Why? November, 2010. This is an open access article that can be found here.
In this podcast, Alex Cross, PhD candidate at the University of Western Ontario, talks about the interrelationship between language and math. She also talks about the three ways by which we can represent quantities. Some are more language based than others. This podcast provides great tips for parents and educators who work with children who have difficulties with language and/or math. We also talk about her YouTube video which explains a bit about DLD in the classroom, most particularly as it pertains to sciences. Here is the link.
Alex also talks about her favorite resource: www.RADLD.org. Check out this amazing website on DLD.
