Assessing School-Age Children With Language Disorders (On Demand Webinar)
Already an ASHA Learning Pass subscriber?
Language is a highly complex human behavior, and yet SLPs often are expected to assess children for language disorders by administering a single, standardized test. However, this "one-size-fits-all" approach often yields inadequate results. This webinar will describe steps to help SLPs develop clear rationales and clinical decision-making strategies to assess fundamental language skills more effectively and facilitate intervention planning. The speaker will identify and discuss models that align the clinical questions underlying an evaluation with desired diagnostic outcomes.
You will be able to:
- describe models of assessment related to language disorders
- explain how the psychometric properties of standardized tests can be targeted to accomplish diagnostic goals
- integrate test data with clinical observation to determine diagnostic outcomes
- align diagnostic assessment approaches/outcomes with recommendations for intervention
