Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Evaluations for Speech-Language Pathologists
 
November 2, 2021 - 8:15 AM - 3:15 PM (Log in 8:00 AM - 8:15 AM)
 
Over the past few decades, the field of Speech-Language Pathology has expanded to
reach more populations and those with greater linguistic diversity. Yet, too often what is considered to
be the accepted way to identify a language-based disability is based on the administration of
standardized tests. These tests regularly fail to tease out disability from language differences or lack of
prior knowledge of the content assumed by the test leading to over- and under-identification of students
due to implicit biases in assessment practices. Skills evaluated by these tests are often more associated
with culture or socioeconomic status. Fortunately, a significant area of research has developed that
guides evaluators to move beyond standardized tests that primarily focus on morphology and vocabulary.
Clinicians must learn new assessment skills including on elicitation and analysis of language samples,
dynamic assessment, and non-word repetition tasks. In this talk, participants acquire an understanding of
that research and how to apply the research to their evaluations thereby increasing the accuracy of their
evaluations. Videos of case studies are used for analysis so participants acquire skills to apply to their
next evaluation
