Differential Diagnosis in Preschool Evaluations: A Case Study (DDPE Playlist)
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.
Motor Speech, Articulation, and Speech Sound Inventory (DDPE Playlist: Module 7)
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.
Dynamic Assessment: Nonword Repetition, Syllable and Sentence Repetition (DDPE Playlist: Module 8)
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.
Putting It All Together in the Written Evaluation Report (DDPE Playlist: Module 9)
This module reviews how Cate combines all the information gathered during the assessment and puts it together into a diagnosis and final report.
Developing Appropriate Goals for the IEP (DDPE Playlist: Module 10)
In this module, Cate reviews the conclusions of the evaluation and works to develop goals that will provide the support that Alex really needs.

An evaluator who uses this kind of test to identify disability must assume that all children being evaluated have had similar...
