Summary: Written expression is one of the four major modalities (along with listening comprehension, spoken expression, and reading decoding and comprehension) that SLPs need to assess when identifying language and literacy disorders among school-age children and adolescents. This session shares a framework for analyzing the variety of tasks used for written language assessment on standardized tests and considers pros and cons of each to inform decisions regarding eligibility and dismissal. The session includes opportunities to practice applying a multilevel language analysis system to written language samples of students with varied profiles. This course is a recorded session from the 2022/2023 online conference "Assessment, Eligibility, and Dismissal in Schools: Strategies, Tools, and Decision-Making."

Summary: Motor planning is an individual difference that impacts much more than motor skills, including social-emotional skills and speech and language development. It impacts areas like executive functioning and written narratives. This presentation discusses the components of motor planning, how to support clients with motor planning challenges, and strategies for discussing praxis with caregivers.

Summary: This session highlights recent advances in understanding language acquisition in children who are deaf/hard of hearing (DHH), with an emphasis on the acquisition of sign languages (either on their own or alongside spoken languages). Speakers present advances in measurement, by introducing three new tools that are available for clinical use: the D-LEAT, the LAPT, and the ASL-CDI 2.0.

Summary: Language assessment in children who are deaf or hard of hearing often focuses on language outcomes without a precise characterization of the child's language learning history. Speech-language pathologists and other early interventionists need support in ensuring that the child's cumulative experience with linguistic input (or lack thereof) is also captured. This session presents a practical approach for this process that follows emerging research on language access profiles. This course is a recorded technical session from the 2021 ASHA Convention Virtual Library (session 4064V).

Summary: Published research indicates that outcomes in children with hearing loss are generally lower than their hearing counterparts. Given the cascading effects auditory deprivation and language delays may cause in children, providing differential diagnoses can present a challenge. This course identifies commonly occurring comorbid presentations in children with hearing loss and describes the process of making differential diagnoses.

Summary: This course discusses strategies for filling possible gaps in knowledge about orthographic pattern learning, including language/literacy assessment profiles of students with the word-structure problems that typify dyslexia and how those problems are influenced by accompanying strengths or weaknesses of vocabulary and related skills needed for oral and written language comprehension and expression. Takeaways include parameters for making intervention decisions in an interprofessional, family-centered, curriculum-relevant environment.

Summary: This course describes the creation of Sing and Speak 4 Kids (SS4Kids), an innovative music-based program to support speech and language development in young children with various impairments. The presentation discusses in-program progress tracking, quantitative data graphics, focus group, and user feedback, and includes video examples of program usage. Presenters discuss clinical implementation and implications.

Summary: The learning characteristics of children with severe disabilities necessitate collaboration with families and professionals to determine goals and objectives of literacy instruction. This session provides an overview of the SLP’s key role in literacy instruction and describes student learning characteristics and research-based literacy instruction for students with severe disabilities.

Credit(s): PDHs: 1.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.1
Summary: This session discusses curriculum-based literacy demands and the interests of adolescents who are from varying culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. The speaker shares actionable steps to promote students' access and engagement in literacy by developing an intervention plan that promotes a culturally and linguistically supportive setting.

Credit(s): PDHs: 0.5, ASHA CEUs*: 0.05
Summary: Many of the static assessments administered by speech-language pathologists have some degree of cultural assumptions and are often limited in representing diverse groups. This course provides strategies to assess standardized assessments' cultural and linguistic sensitivity and provides guidance for the use of alternative assessment options.
