Training AND Materials

#e160 ITI sample pages

Discover a unique and highly effective strategy for teaching receptive and expressive language using text and images as visual prompts to create meaningful and pragmatic language. Interactive Text Instruction (ITI) is a motivating and mindful approach to learning what makes words and word combinations more meaningful while it builds concepts for new learning. ITI makes language learning socially reinforcing and fun in a way that facilitates learning and generalization across environments. Unlike computer programs or tablet apps, personal interaction with the child is central to this approach to help children with language and communication delays learn to interact with others. Offered for 0.1 ASHA CEUs – 1 contact hour.

This course includes (3) FREE downloadable lessons for immediate implementation of the ITI strategies!

Content Disclosure: This presentation will focus on the "Interactive Text Instruction Program" for teaching children language and literacy skills. Other treatment approaches will receive limited or no coverage during this lecture. Presenter financial and non-financial disclosures may be found by clicking on the Presenter & Disclosures tab.

Course Format: Video PowerPoint presentation with author narration & downloadable handout.

At eCourse conclusion, participants will be able to:

  1. Explain the Interactive Text Instruction (ITI) strategy for teaching language: combination of auditory and visual information.
  2. Explain multiple learning objectives for working with ITI themes.
  3. Explain flexibility of ITI themes for varying level of language competence.

  5. Explain flexibility of ITI themes for use with social stories for social learning.
