The month of March means “spring break” for many SIG 1 affiliates who work with students. With luck, that sometimes includes a chance to travel or enjoy a short change in routine. These shifts offer us the opportunity to refresh ourselves through professional reading. March is a terrific time to earn some continuing education credits that inspire treatment planning so that our therapy can also be refreshed along with the season. Toward that end, we are very pleased to distribute SIG 1's spring issue of Perspectives on Language Learning and Education.
This issue focuses on the topic of executive function, particularly with regard to how these important cognitive skills can be assessed and facilitated during childhood to promote better functional communication skills throughout life. As you read this publication, you will find an article by Michelle Garcia Winner and Pamela Crooke that explains elements of social learning and how executive functions operate in the context of real-life communication. It is crucial for speech-language pathologists to know how to evaluate these abilities, which operate beyond the limits of our norm-referenced, standardized assessment instruments. Their article also describes specific intervention strategies that promote the development of children's pragmatic and self-regulatory abilities.
