Determining Educational Need for Children With Speech Sound Disorders: Practical Tips for Individualizing Assessment and Treatment in Elementary Schools (WEB19780)

Presenter(s): Kelly Farquharson, PhD, CCC-SLP
Course Description

This session discusses practical strategies to adapt speech sound disorder assessment, treatment, and collaborative practices to appropriately determine educational need in line with federal and state laws and regulations. The speaker reviews three case studies of elementary-age children who have an impairment in speech sound production: one in which a student exhibits academic need, one in which a student exhibits social-emotional need, and one in which a student exhibits neither.

This course is a recorded session from the 2020/2021 online conference “Practical Solutions for Elementary Assessment, Treatment, and Collaboration.”
