In my experience, expressive and receptive language become more challenging to address in the school setting as students become older. The targets are often more abstract (e.g., explaining predictions and inferences vs. expanding categorical knowledge), and the time that spend out of the classroom begins to really add up. I often advocate for push-in sessions, but am also a fan of thoughtfully designed pull-out sessions with a focus on carryover and the curriculum.

See the list below for great ideas to support and assess language development.
