Join us for a 2-hour workshop by BCBA Zaineb Abdulla on Understanding & Addressing Language Deprivation in Deaf Children.
DATE: May 19, 2023
TIME: 6-8PM Eastern
A brain that is deprived of language is a brain that cannot fully develop. Language deprivation is a leading cause of executive dysfunction and learning delays amongst Deaf children. In this workshop, we will be exploring the topic of language deprivation and learning how to address the issue by implementing behavior analytic tools to foster long-term language growth.
