Observing Modifiability During Dynamic Assessment (PD102347)

Presenter(s): Elizabeth D Peña, PhD
Course Description

Dynamic assessment – an alternative to standardized testing that accounts for individuals’ unique cultural and linguistic identities – helps SLPs identify disorder within linguistic variability. Thus, it is critically important to make careful systematic observations of learning during dynamic assessment. In this course – which is broken into six 5-minute blocks – speaker Elizabeth Peña explores what SLPs need to pay attention to during a mediated learning experience session and guides you through identifying key indicators to help you make clinical decisions for an individual on your caseload.

This course is part of the micro course series “Integrating Dynamic Assessment IntoYour Practice.”

  • Describe modifiability
