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.
