Even better SLP education for clinicians who don't see many early lang kids. Had an issue with that this week! #wespeechies

@Claire_Ellenr teachers and preschool teachers are often so confused about where a child should be language wise at what age #wespeechies

MT @wespeechies: @AlisonJSutton Would be a very good start, What should the action be for those who are picked up on screening? #WeSpeechies

A1 better collaboration btw early childhood teachers & slts - 'strengths-based philosophy can make referrals slow #wespeechies

@wespeechies A1. Better access to screening services including maternal and child health checks and education! #WeSpeechies

RT @Prison_literacy: @wespeechies - I believe any intervention should take place before school entry if possible. 2/2 #WeSpeechies

MT @Prison_literacy: #WeSpeechies Criminological research (e.g. Scott 2013) shows children's first contact w CJS is often through school.1/2

@wespeechies @AlisonJSutton Depending on the findings, I would usually recommend full Ax and/or referral on to SLP for Rx #wespeechies

@RylieAndrewsSP yes I agree confusing for non slp. Awareness & understanding key #wespeechies

RT @wespeechies: @BrigidMcNeill Interesting comment - in what way is strengths-based philosophy problematic? #WeSpeechies

@BrigidMcNeill #wespeechies Yes, and with the public health nurses or agencies that see babies / toddlers.

@wespeechies in nz we have the b4 school check, hopefully identifying some children needing #wespeechies http://t.co/S59D431Cys

@TalkTroubleNZ @BrigidMcNeill Good point, these are often first and sometimes only point of contact #wespeechies

Sometimes I think people maybe aware there's a problem but feel it might just go away or they won't qualify for services #WeSpeechies

@wespeechies parents especially first timers & pre/ primary school teachers, there is so much misinformation out there #wespeechies

https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/440957173342818304/zqDVNTsm_normal.png

@BrigidMcNeill #wespeechies I agree, when 'strengths-based' equals ignoring warning signs, SLPs need to advocate services (and follow up!)

https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/440957173342818304/zqDVNTsm_normal.png
MT @BrigidMcNeill: problematic when comm between preschool & slt is poor. Strengthsbased sometimes = lack of focus on language #WeSpeechies

Q2 Are children who come from verbally impoverished environments ‘language impaired’ - why or why not? #WeSpeechies
wespeechies
https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/440957173342818304/zqDVNTsm_normal.png
RT @Prison_literacy: #wespeechies @AlisonJSutton - But who is supposed to administer it and when? That seems to be the more pressing issue.

A2 If they demonstrate lang delay/disorder as a result, then I would lean towards functionally, yes #wespeechies
ryliemorrissp
https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/771576073523867649/0iFUOW5y_normal.jpg
@kepowell @wespeechies and sometimes this info is from parents and non-slps, who mean well, but may do more harm than good #wespeechies

wespeechies
https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/440957173342818304/zqDVNTsm_normal.png
MT @wespeechies: @kepowell #wespeechies Indeed. GPs often not well equipped to give informed opinion (but may not realise own limitations..)
claire_ellenr
https://abs.twimg.com/sticky/default_profile_images/default_profile_normal.png
A2 Sometimes. Can have a huge impact! If it results in them being below their peers then yes definitely #wespeechies
kepowell
https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/521038400317845504/FK9FQFwa_normal.jpeg
@RylieAndrewsSP @wespeechies A2. yes but how can we say for sure it's as a result of "Verbally impoverished enviro" ? #wespeechies

@kepowell @wespeechies mostly it would be a bit of inferring from case Hx and reports from other professionals, but v difficult #wespeechies
ryliemorrissp
https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/771576073523867649/0iFUOW5y_normal.jpg
@kepowell @wespeechies and that's only a very subjective judgement, and is likely not the whole picture #wespeechies

https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/521038400317845504/FK9FQFwa_normal.jpeg

Q3 Behaviour can be a form of communication - but how can we convince policy makers of this, and ways that #WeSpeechies can help?
kepowell
https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/521038400317845504/FK9FQFwa_normal.jpeg
@wespeechies @paeadie 'lag' 'impairment' 'poor performance' how do we define these terms? Need more consistency #WeSpeechies
claire_ellenr
https://abs.twimg.com/sticky/default_profile_images/default_profile_normal.png
Make them aware. Reveal deficits and what that means for children. help them to understand how this can happen #wespeechies
claire_ellenr
https://abs.twimg.com/sticky/default_profile_images/default_profile_normal.png
whoops A3 #wespeechies we have to help them to understand by revealing the deficits in those children with behaviour issue. its our job!
kepowell
https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/521038400317845504/FK9FQFwa_normal.jpeg
@wespeechies A3. Very difficult! Maybe if they observed sessions themselves, but how does that happen? #wespeechies
ryliemorrissp
https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/771576073523867649/0iFUOW5y_normal.jpg
A3 To get policy makers attn we sometimes need to prove benefit on behaviour and outcomes rather than simply proving 1/2 #wespeechies
ryliemorrissp
https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/771576073523867649/0iFUOW5y_normal.jpg
A3 that it exists and needs funding and resources 2/2 #wespeechies

Q4 Why are SLPs/SLTs mostly absent from Youth Justice Settings, and how can we increase our influence in this important area?#WeSpeechies
claire_ellenr
https://abs.twimg.com/sticky/default_profile_images/default_profile_normal.png
@RylieAndrewsSP Great Point! Policy makers need outcome measures and figures to even think about funding or existance #wespeechies
ryliemorrissp
https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/771576073523867649/0iFUOW5y_normal.jpg
@wespeechies and the outcomes have to be so significant to drive any change in policy and funding #wespeechies
