Effectively assessing preschool children with emotional and behavioral difficulties can be
challenging for SLPs. Typical testing protocols do not always work well with this
population, meaning many preschool children with behavioral and emotional needs are
not appropriately identified in order to receive much-needed speech-language and other
services. This session explores the connections among social, emotional, behavior, and
communication difficulties as well as discuss formal and informal assessment that are
appropriate for this population.
This course is a recorded session from the 2019/2020 online conference “Innovative Methods
for Preschool Assessment, Collaboration, and Treatment.”
You will be able to:
- explain the connection between late language development and social-emotional
- describe manifestations of emotional and behavioral difficulties in young children
with language deficits
- identify formal and informal assessments relevant to preschoolers
