Two-day Training Course in Tallinn
>> August 27 – 28, 2020
By Professor, Dr. Courtenay Norbury:
“Understanding Developmental Language Disorders and Pragmatic Disorders.
From Theory to Practice”
About the training course
On this two-day course participants will gather information about current research on the evolution of diagnostic approaches to Developmental Language Disorders and Pragmatic Disorders.
Participants will have an opportunity to review different assessment tools, discuss their own cases, and discuss potential treatment targets. We will consider the evidence base for current approaches to intervention and consider barriers to implementation and maintenance of treatment effects. Participants will leave with practical ideas and a reference guide to assessment and treatment.
