ASHA Approved Continuing Education Provider Announces Two New Live, Interactive Webinars for California Speech-Language Pathologists.

Plano, TX (PRWEB) February 19, 2013

Leading provider of online continuing education for speech-language pathologists today announced two new live, interactive webinars that aim to provide speech-language pathologists with new skills for working with young clients. The webinars broadcast on Sunday, February 24th and offer up six hours of continuing education credit that meet the live requirements for California SLPs.

The first live course deals with a challenging subject for any rehabilitation professional but one that they will inevitably face in the course of their work: Child abuse and neglect.

"Children are being abused at alarming rates", explains course presenter Amy Burzinski, L.I.S.W. "Staggering statistics point out that it is imperative for clinicians, educators and health care professionals to be equipped with a clear understanding of what child abuse is, how to identify it and intervene". Ms.Burzinski's course will provide participants with knowledge, increased understanding and intervention techniques to apply to their clinical practice.

Areas of discussion include basic statistics, demographics and prevalence associated with child abuse as well as forms of abuse, distinguishing abuse from accident and investigating when child abuse is suspected. The course will also discuss identifying offender and victim traits, characteristics and dynamics and how best to use current resources effectively for reporting child abuse.

"Child Abuse & Neglect: Recognizing and Responding to Hurtful & Harmful Behavior" broadcasts Sunday, February 24th, 2013 from 11am to 2pmET.

The second webinar of the weekend aims to provide the clinician with an increased understanding of children's negative feelings.

Course presenter Adina Soclof, MS., CCC-SLP teaches that "Praise is probably the single most effective way to encourage, motivate and increase repeat positive behavior in children. Praise also increases self-esteem. Children with developmental disabilities - including communication disorders - are at risk for low self-esteem. One of our responsibilities as clinicians is to ensure that the client will have a more positive view of self. Using praise effectively is one way to achieve that goal". Her course will discuss six tools to help accept, manage, and empathize with children's negative feelings in a therapy setting.

"New Ways to Communicate With Your Young Client" broadcasts live on Sunday, February 24th, 2013 at 3pm until 6pmET. webinars are designed to deliver an enhanced learning experience, streaming premiere content directly to the busy therapist's computer or laptop. These live, interactive sessions include demonstrative videos, detailed illustrations and interactive question and answer periods with highly respected educators.
