We are wrapping up our conference on speech sound disorders and the conversations and insights were just TOO GOOD to not capture. We boiled some of the best, most inspiring, and most impactful ideas into short clips.

1. What is the Language Combination Effect and how should we assess the skills of both languages for bilingual children?
2. What happens when we only use standardized measures in testing bilingual and minoritized students?

4. How does the speech language evaluation process need to change?
