Dr. Cate Crowley walks us through an appropriate evaluation of a culturally and linguistically diverse (CLD) preschooler, previously misdiagnosed. She takes us from the parent interview, to interacting with the child, writing the evaluation and even formulating appropriate IEP goals.
In this module, Cate continues with the evaluation by performing an assessment of Alex’s speech and articulation through the use of an articulation screener from the PLS-5.
In this module Cate discusses using dynamic assessment using repetition of nonwords, sentences and syllables (Dollaghan & Campbell, 1998) to help confirm Alex’s diagnosis of developmental apraxia.
This module reviews how Cate combines all the information gathered during the assessment and puts it together into a diagnosis and final report.
In this module, Cate reviews the conclusions of the evaluation and works to develop goals that will provide the support that Alex really needs.
This document contains the nonword tasks first developed by Dollaghan & Campbell (1998) as part of assessment that is less biased towards diverse populations.
This module demonstrates dynamic assessment using the non-word repetition task with a typically developing child and a low-average performing child.
This module demonstrates dynamic assessment using the non-word repetition task with a child with a mild language delay and a child with a moderate to severe delay.
This module begins to explain exactly what clinical judgment, or informed clinical opinion, is and how to use it during the evaluation process.
