Not all disabilities result in language deficits. For those that do, there are often common characteristics of how language is affected by that particular disability. Educators should be familiar with the language deficits that are common within each disability category, as well as the interventions that are often used in school settings to assist with them. Using this topic’s readings, research the following disability categories: 

Learning Disabilities

Intellectual Disabilities

Autism

Auditory Impairments

Acquired Language Disorders

Using the “Language and Speech Disorder Matrix,” for each disability category: Describe characteristics of common language deficits. Include 1-2 examples of instructional or classroom intervention strategies that can be used to provide optimal learning opportunities. Rationalize your instructional or classroom intervention strategy choices. Provide 1-2 recommendations for at-home activities that parents/families can implement. Support your work with 2-3 scholarly resources. Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center. An abstract is/is not required. This assignment uses a rubric. Review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion. You are required to submit this assignment to LopesWrite. Refer to the LopesWrite Technical Support articles for assistance.

Field Experience

Understanding common speech and language disorders and their eligibility categories is vital in meeting the needs of students who receive speech and language services. With this understanding, teachers will be well equipped to plan and implement effective instructional and classroom intervention strategies. Allocate at least 5 hours in the field to support this field experience. Observe and collaborate with a certified K-5 classroom teacher about language and speech disorders and appropriate interventions. Use your mentor teacher collaboration and classroom observations to examine the following: Types of learning disabilities and impairments experienced in professional practice and in the current classroom setting, to include autism, specific learning disability, traumatic brain injury, and speech and language impairment/articulation disorders. The effect of language impairment on social and academic skill development. Research-based instructional and classroom interventions for meeting the needs of students with language and speech impairments. Types of AAC or AT systems, including how those tools were integrated into instruction. Recommended resources or materials to meet the needs of students with language and speech disorders. Use any remaining field experience hours to assist the mentor teacher in providing instruction and support to the class. In 500-750 words, summarize and reflect upon your collaboration and observations. Explain how you will use your findings in your future professional practice. Support your work with 2-3 scholarly resources. Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center. An abstract is/is not required. This assignment uses a rubric. Review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.
