Perspectives in the Assessment of Children's Speech
Five well-recognized interventionists and researchers in the area of phonology were asked, “In a typical 60–90 minute evaluation session with a child, what do you assess?” They were provided with a hypothetical case study and assessment plan, and their task was to respond with their own theories and models for conducting a 60–90 minute initial evaluation of the child’s speech and language. The result is an extraordinary discussion of theoretical frameworks and clinical practices.
You will be able to:
- describe five differing approaches to phonological assessment presented in the articles
- compare and contrast approaches to assessment, and assessment tools, presented in the articles
- discuss advantages and disadvantages of standardized versus nonstandardized assessments of child phonology
- assess the applicability to your practice of assessment methods described in the articles
