Already an ASHA Learning Pass subscriber?
Many SLPs face the challenge of assessing and evaluating
English language learners (ELLs) whose primary language they do not know in
order to ascertain whether students are manifesting a language difference or a
language impairment. There are no formal tests to administer to ELLs who speak
a language such as Vietnamese, Tagalog, or Russian, but SLPs must find a way to
evaluate the student in a legal, nonbiased manner. In this session, Celeste
Roseberry-McKibbin provides practical tools that SLPs can use with ELLs ages
3-18 from any language background. The course also touches on intervention,
specifically language of intervention and practical strategies for increasing
the vocabulary skills of ELLs with language impairments.
