Assessing Preschool Children With Challenging Behaviors (WEB19013)

Presenter(s): Tatyana Elleseff, MA, CCC-SLP
Course Description

Effectively assessing preschool children with emotional and behavioral difficulties can be challenging for SLPs. Typical testing protocols do not always work well with this population, meaning many preschool children with behavioral and emotional needs are not appropriately identified in order to receive much-needed speech-language and other services. This session explores the connections among social, emotional, behavior, and communication difficulties as well as discuss formal and informal assessment that are appropriate for this population.

This course is a recorded session from the 2019/2020 online conference “Innovative Methods for Preschool Assessment, Collaboration, and Treatment.”

Learning Objectives:
You will be able to:

  • explain the connection between late language development and social-emotional functioning
  • describe manifestations of emotional and behavioral difficulties in young children with language deficits
  • identify formal and informal assessments relevant to preschoolers
