Pélagie M. Beeson, Ph.D.
Title: What is Primary Progressive Aphasia and What Treatment is Effective?
Session Time: 2:30-4:00
Cost: $20 for Arizona Residents and $40 for non-Arizona Residents
Despite considerable progress in understanding the underlying neurobiology of primary progressive aphasia (PPA), relatively little attention has been directed toward behavioral interventions that may lessen the pervasive communication problems. In this presentation, we provide an overview of recognized PPA variants, and demonstrate the potential value of lexical retrieval treatment.

Ria Godoy
Title: Internet Success for your Business!
Session Time: 1:00-4:15
Cost: $40 for Arizona Residents and $80 for non-Arizona Residents
Social Media, Websites, Content Marketing, Search Engine Optimization will be broken down so that you can make your business effective on the internet. Inbound/Outbound Marketing, PPC, Best Practices, Tips, and other information will be shared.  Bring your questions and prepare to participate in this discussion.

Trina D. Spencer, Ph.D.
Title: Multi-Tiered System of Language Support: The Possible Reality!
Session Time: 1:00-4:15
Cost: $40 for Arizona Residents and $80 for non-Arizona Residents
Too many students, especially those with language impairment or who are culturally and linguistically diverse, do not sufficiently comprehend what they read. Students who are at risk of reading comprehension problems can be identified and helped long before reading comprehension problems emerge. However, educators need measures and intervention curricula to promote language comprehension before language differences and difficulties transform into reading comprehension problems. In this course, a solution to this problem will be described using research based case example and recommendations for building capacity for MTSLS in schools.
