Building on Student Strengths (WEB18261)

Presenter(s): Kim Murza, PhD, CCC-SLP
Course Description

Dynamic assessment, which seeks to identify a child’s individual skills and learning potential, can be a useful but labor-intensive process. In this course – which is broken into six 5-minute activities – presenter Kim Murza demonstrates how you can efficiently collect data through dynamic assessment using the META (Match – Extend – Try it – Assess) Map tool to extend and expand on the student’s communicative strengths. She then guides you through actionable steps to use the tool and reflect on the results.

Learning Outcomes
You will be able to:

  • Describe how to extend or expand on what is working for a student on your caseload using a dynamic assessment tool
