Literacy Assessment: Controversies, Explanations, and Essential Components
Already an ASHA Learning Pass subscriber?
This session explores
the school-based SLP’s role—and how they can advocate for that role—in
assessing students’ literate language skills as part of a comprehensive
language assessment. The speaker outlines the essential components of a
comprehensive language assessment and discusses how to interpret patterns of
strengths and weaknesses, with implications for intervention planning. This
session is a recorded
session from ASHA’s 2020 Schools Connect conference.
You will be able to:
the role of the SLP in assessing literacy as part of comprehensive language
key components of literacy assessment for school-age children and adolescents
assessment profiles and describe patterns associated with language levels
(sound, word, sentence, discourse) that point to distinct goal areas and
approaches to language intervention
