Celeste Roseberry-McKibbin, Ph.D., professor of speech pathology and audiology at California State University- Sacramento, will present "Service Delivery to Low SES Students with Potential/Identified Language Impairment."
As the U.S. economy has become more troubled, the numbers of students in poverty have increased sharply. Although the effects of poverty on children's linguistic, cognitive, and academic development have always been documented, these effects are especially prevalent today.
The lecture and workshop describes those effects and presents research-based, inexpensive, easy-to-implement strategies for supporting low SES students to increase their language skills and academic achievement and thus their chances for a productive future.
