Rethinking Themes! Being Culturally Responsive with Literacy Therapy
Thematic intervention is an evidence-based practice used by teachers in classrooms as well as by speech language pathologists in therapy sessions. Using themes offers a meaningful way of presenting information and choosing themes that are relevant to students helps build a connection between therapy and real life. It is also a time saver and an easy way to streamline planning and preparation! Research studies have shown improved communication outcomes when themes are utilized; however, when we limit the types of books and images used in thematic intervention, we limit our students' access to characters and stories that represent their own lived experiences and reduce their exposure to experiences that differ from their own. This course will focus on how to utilize picture books with inclusive representation for thematic intervention.
