Particular attention will be placed on classroom strategies to support students with language- based learning disabilities. 1090  The Use of Children’s Literature to Teach Multiple Literacy Schema to Meet Standards TH 1:30PM-2:30PM / CC, 212 (Lvl 2) Introductory; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Jennifer Means, West Chester U; Bethany Agostini, West Chester U This presentation addresses the use of a single children’s literature book to teach multiple literacy schema while anchoring them to the CCSS. Detailed therapy plans for both small and large group instruction will be presented as examples for take away concepts and for easily applied activities supported by EBP. 1091  What SLPs Need to Know About the Simple View of Reading TH 1:30PM-2:30PM / CC, 154 (Lvl 1) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Mindy Bridges, U of Kansas Med Ctr; Tiffany Hogan, MGH Inst In this seminar we use the Simple View of Reading as a theoretical framework for the classification of poor readers.

SPEECH SOUND DISORDERS IN NORMAL-HEARING CHILDREN (SLP) 1093  10 Evidence-Based Tips to Revolutionize Your Approach to Target Selection With Pediatric Speech Sound Disorders TH 1:30PM-2:30PM / CC, 210A (Lvl 2) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Kathryn Cabbage, Brigham Young U; Shari DeVeney, U of Nebraska at Omaha This session is developed by, and presenters invited by, Speech Sound Disorders in Normal- Hearing Children. Speech sound disorders (SSDs) represent one of the most common communication impairments across pediatric populations, yet SSDs are often considered to be of minor concern compared to other disorders. However, children with SSD are at significant risk for long-term negative outcomes. To mitigate these outcomes, clinicians need updated evidence-based information regarding important treatment factors such as sound/sound-class target selection. 1094  Genetics of Speech Sound Disorders & Co-Morbid Disorders: A New Era of Discovery TH 1:30PM-2:30PM / CC, 255 (Lvl 2) Intermediate; Research AUTHOR(S): Barbara Lewis, Case Western Reserve U; Sudha Iyengar, Case Western Reserve U; Catherine Stein, Case Western Reserve U This seminar will review genetics of speech sound disorders incorporating findings from genome wide association studies, whole genome sequencing, and epigenetic studies. Endophenotypes that contribute to speech sound disorders will be proposed and the overlap of these cognitive traits with language impairment and reading disorders will be explored. The application of genetics to clinical practice will be discussed.
