SIG 9 Perspectives Vol. 23, No. 1, September 2013
This issue of Perspectives highlights challenges in assessing children when there are developmental concerns in addition to hearing loss. Specialty assessment tools, including an interdisciplinary team approach, are discussed. Information is provided regarding the impact of using assessment tools for diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) when children are deaf or hard-of-hearing.
You will be able to:
- provide a rationale for the interdisciplinary assessment of children who have complex developmental conditions in addition to hearing loss
- discuss the traits of ASD that can be misidentified in children who are deaf or hard-of-hearing
- describe the subtests and items on the Autism Diagnostic Observation Scale (ADOS) that are used to assess autism and ASD
- differentiate characteristics of children who are deaf or hard-of-hearing with language disorders from children who are deaf or hard-of-hearing with ASD
