Promoting Vocabulary Development: A Robust and Deep Intervention Approach


Target groups:

Speech-language pathologists, parents and other caregivers, early interventionists, early childhood educators


Program Description

Children with language impairment and other diagnoses such as Autism Spectrum Disorder and Intellectual Disability usually have major vocabulary deficits. These vocabulary deficits negatively impact written and verbal language skills, causing academic and social difficulties that can last a lifetime. This workshop discusses specific, evidence-based practice methods and materials for working with children from infancy through teens who are vulnerable to vocabulary deficits. A research-based, practical, hands-on approach to intervention is addressed in depth.

  1. Define the term vocabulary and explain its importance to children’s oral and written language skills.
  2. List practical activities for caregivers of infants and toddlers to build the children’s vocabulary skills.
  3. Describe practical intervention activities and materials for preschool children (ages 3-5) to build vocabulary skills.
  4. Summarize practical intervention activities and materials for building oral and written vocabulary skills in school-aged children (ages 6-12).
  5. Differentiate between Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3 vocabulary words.
  6. Explain specific methods for teaching Tier 2 vocabulary words to school-aged students.
  7. Formulate ideas for enriching the vocabulary skills of at-risk teen students.
  8. Explain the thematic redundance approach to teaching vocabulary in a robust and deep way.
