The session will first provide teachers with an overview of how we define language-based learning disability at Landmark School, followed by some common observable indicators of expressive language weakness that one might see in a classroom setting. The hour will conclude with targeted strategies to support both written and oral language development for students of this complex learning profile. Content will include practical instructional strategies that can be applied in a variety of learning environments.



This webinar is appropriate for educators at the middle and high school levels.
