Say the Word | Sierra Weir : Parent Support Group for Social/Pragmatic Language
I am organizing a parent support group centered around children and teens with diagnoses relating to social/pragmatic langauge disorder. This is typical with a diagnosis such as autism spectrum disorder, developmental delay and AD/HD. My goal for the group is to provide a space to learn more about what a social/pragmatic language disorder is and evidence-based methods for managing this complex disorder. This group will be led by a licensed and ASHA certified speech-language pathologist with years of experience diagnosing and treating children, teens and adults learning to cope with a condition that, if left untreated, can have a profound, negative impact on the individual and their loved ones. In this group, we will discuss core features of a social/pragmatic language disorder, behavioral responses to the disorder and supportive management strategies.
