Vocabulary acquisition is a common goal for preschool and school-age children. This journal self-study course explores research that can enhance the theoretical basis for SLPs’ common practices and expand clinicians’ repertoire of evidence-based interventions for vocabulary instruction. The articles in this self-study explore increasing expressive vocabulary in school-age children with ASD by focusing on the relationship between individual speech sound inventories and psycholinguistic variables; explicit, embedded vocabulary instruction for at-risk preschool children during literacy activities; intervention for adjectives using learning theory principles; and essential components for effective vocabulary instruction.
After this course, you will be able to:
- explain how utilization of speech sound inventories and phonotactic probability can facilitate expressive vocabulary acquisition in children with autism spectrum disorder
- describe the use of embedded instruction in literacy activities to promote word learning
- summarize the three principles of learning theory that can be used to teach acquisition of adjectives
- discuss findings related to how well specific children’s television programming adheres to principles of vocabulary instruction
