Social Pragmatic Language Difficulties and Reading Comprehension
Presented by Mara Lane, M.S., CCC/SLP

The participants will be able to identify the connection between deficits in reading comprehension and the impact it has on social language. Deficits in vocabulary, simple and complex sentence comprehension, higher level language skills such as non-literal language, figurative/idiomatic language, multiple meanings, and ambiguous language all play a role in how a student is able to analyze text as well as interact in a dynamic manner with peers. Specific strategies will be discussed.
