Meaningful SpeechTM Speaking Engagements & Live In-Person Trainings
Thank you for your interest in working with Meaningful SpeechTM.
We have two great solutions to advance your knowledge about Gestalt Language Processing! Attend a live in-person training OR get started with our introductory video series.
We are not currently booking speaking engagements.
If you are looking to educate your staff, school, daycare, organization, or your own family (grandparents, caregivers), we have created a solution for you!
Our 1-hour video series with an accompanying workbook (PDF download), taught by Meaningful Speech team member Katie Arnold, MCD, CCC-SLP, will cover all the basics about gestalt language development along with the most vital information you will need to know when interacting with a GLP.
An Introductory Video Series:
Gestalt Language Processing, A Natural Process
Many of us, parents, teachers, and clinicians, really have heard only about analytic language development. To learn about another natural, typical way of developing language can be exciting, daunting, and, for many, reassuring that the delayed echolalia they have observed with their gestalt language processor (GLP) is a NATURAL first step in developing language for our GLPs.
We have created a 1-hour video series for anyone looking to learn:
- What is echolalia
- How delayed echolalia (or scripting) supports language development
- How to identify a gestalt language processor
- Important foundational knowledge of the dos and don’ts of working with a gestalt language processor (GLP)
While not all GLPs are autistic, many autistic individuals are GLPs! If you are working with an autistic child as a teacher, parent, SLP, or OT/PT chances are you may be working with a gestalt language processor! Want to dip your toes into learning about GLP? This one's for you!
