In this course, participants will review literacy-based therapy and how it can facilitate meaningful and functional outcomes for our students. Participants will be presented with strategies to select high-quality books and to use those books when targeting a variety of speech and language goals. Relevant evidence and practical demonstrations will be provided to show SLPs how they can implement evidence-based strategies when targeting goals using literature.
