What Is Dynamic Assessment? (PD102345)

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


When testing children from linguistically and culturally diverse backgrounds, SLPs can use dynamic assessment (DA) as an alternative to standardized testing. In this course – which is broken into six 5-minute blocks – speaker Elizabeth Peña answers the oft-asked question, “What exactly IS dynamic assessment?” Peña explains how DA is different from other process-based approaches and guides you through identifying individuals on your caseload who could benefit from DA.

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

Learning Outcomes
You will be able to:

  • Define and describe dynamic assessment (DA) in contrast to standardized assessment, response to intervention, and observation

What Is a Micro Course?
