1. Rationale for Utilizing Systematic Instruction
Why is learning to become a great instructor as an SLP important? In the first chapter of this course, Dr. McKay Sohlberg describes how systematic instruction is an essential skill for the implementation of a range of therapy targets and rehabilitation approaches for acquired memory impairments.
2. Memory Theory
In the second chapter of this course, Dr. Sohlberg reviews key theories of memory and memory research that underlie and inform systematic instruction practice. Types of memory, the stages of remembering, and milestone studies are covered.
3. Instruction Framework
Once participants have a grasp of the rationale for use of systematic instruction in clinical practice, and the theory behind it, the next step is to review an overall framework of instruction. This framework emphasizes repeated planning, implementation, and evaluation phases of instruction.
4. Instructional Techniques
In the final lecture-based portion of this course, Dr. Sohlberg provides instruction and examples of typical session components, including the development and use of task analyses, error minimization techniques, stimuli elaboration, and generalization facilitation.
