This material can be used by a Speech Language Pathologist when presenting inservice to teaching assistants or paraprofessionals. It takes around an hour to present the material in this packet. The role of the SLP in schools is often misunderstood. With dollars tight, schools are often looking toward their own resources to share knowledge. Providing training to teaching assistants could also be used as a smart goal.
The packet is divided up into two parts a presenter copy with information to use as a guide and a participant packet that provides both information and outline (to encourage some note taking and active listening).
