Poster Session 2A
The Effects of Low, Moderate, and High Dialect Densities on Auxiliary Be Production
in Child African American English                                                                  .025 CEU

in their nonmainstream dialect densities (high, moderate, low). Results showed that children’s BE use was
influenced by the same linguistic variables, but the nature of the influence depended on the children’s non-
mainstream dialect densities.

  The “New” PLS-5                                                                                         .1 CEU

  findings and best practice principles in early language assessment. This session will discuss current research
  findings, including review for bias, cultural considerations, and is designed to meet the principles as critical
  to success in early intervention settings from birth through 6.11 years. THIS IS NOT A SALES PRESEN-
  TATION. IT IS INTENDED TO FOCUS AWARENESS OF AN IMPROVED “CORE” TOOL FOR
  SPEECH PATHOLOGISTS

  Tell Me What You See                                                                                    .1 CEU
  Jan Shook, Beth Skrmetta
  Abstract: Combining strategies between education and speech pathology has traditionally yielded a “winwin”
  situation for school-aged children. Coaching children to use visual strategies to really examine fine art draws
  them into a new platform for communication by facilitating “joint attention” to a given subject. We know
  from research on Visual Scene Displays that children are more likely to recall/retain a given word that ap-
  peared in a ‘scene’ versus one presented either on flash card or on a grid organized system. The focus of this
  session will be to provide school-based SLP’s a strategy to use in therapy as well as one to share with class-
  room teachers.
