Social Communication & Belonging in the Classroom

Presentation Description : Even children with age-appropriate vocabulary development typically experience pragmatic language and social issues related to a lifelong reduction in incidental learning, secondary to a smaller listening bubble. This presentation will provide some foundations to this issue, means to assess, and ways to respond to improve social skills and feelings of belonging.

Three Learner Outcomes : The participants will be able to:

  1. Describe specific ways to identify pragmatic language needs and address socialization issues
  2. Describe how stages of psychosocial development affect student socialization and feelings of fitting in
  3. Use available materials to guide student discussions to address feelings of fitting in
