Advanced academic vocabulary is largely made up of multi-morphemic words such as geographical, inequality and expressionism. To assess and intervene on vocabulary development, clinicians may consider identifying multi-morphemic words and morphemes that children already produce in language samples.
Learn about language sampling and the development of different types of morphology.
Practice the systematic identification of multi-morphemic words in a real language sample produced by a child who is deaf or hard-of-hearing.
Brainstorm ways to use this information in setting goals and developing stimuli for intervention.
