Using Language Sample Analysis to Assess Adolescents

Spoken and written communication skills are vital to academic and vocational success. Teenagers in middle and high school are presented with increasingly complex information and must be able to use language appropriately to understand, explain, and apply this information in a variety of ways. This journal self-study discusses what is known about how early speech sound disorders and language impairments—whether resolved or not—may affect language and literacy outcomes during adolescence. In addition, this course explores how spoken and written language sample analysis can be conducted with teens, considerations for including critical thinking tasks during language sample analysis, and what information can be obtained from such analyses. Clinicians will come away with a better understanding of ways to implement language sampling in their clinical practice and of the importance of going beyond standardized testing to fully assess adolescents
