Assessing School-Age Children With Speech-Sound Disorders (On Demand Webinar)
Already an ASHA Learning Pass subscriber?
SLPs often assess school-age children for speech-sound disorders using a single, standardized test. However, this "one-size-fits-all" approach can yield results that do not account for the impact of speech-sound disorders on other aspects of academic performance. This webinar describes steps to help SLPs develop clear rationales and clinical decision-making strategies to assess speech-sound skill areas more effectively and facilitate intervention planning.
You will be able to:
- describe models of assessment related to speech-sound disorders
- explain how test construction can accomplish diagnostic goals
- integrate test data with clinical observation to determine diagnostic outcomes
- use diagnostic outcomes to shape recommendations for eligibility and programming decisions
- Review of basic terminology and background information
- Testing approaches, measures, and procedures
- Disordered speech: Error analysis, interpretation, and differential diagnosis
- Implications for academic performance
- Additional handouts
