Exploring Curriculum-Based Language Assessment and Interventions
Already an ASHA Learning Pass subscriber?
Spoken and written language skills underlie all aspects of the school curriculum and are essential for school success. This journal self-study, which includes articles from a Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in Schools clinical forum, addresses ways SLPs can assess and treat language disorders within the context of the school curriculum. The goal of the articles is, as noted in the introductory article, “to establish the school-based SLP as the language and literacy expert for curriculum-based interventions and assessment” (Bourque Meaux, 2018, p.138). The authors in the clinical forum discuss alternate service delivery options and tools for school-based SLPs to use and also explore how SLPs can mentor and educate other school professionals to better support language skills within the school curriculum.
You will be able to:
- describe the skills/competencies students need to become effective readers and writers
- discuss the role of the SLP in addressing student literacy needs within the school curriculum
- explain at least three ways to incorporate literacy activities into the school curriculum
- discuss ways to address the unique needs of high school students with language impairments
- describe how cultural and linguistic diversity may impact a student’s ability to engage with the math curriculum
