We are excited to again be a part of the ASHA Convention 2018.We love to put names to faces so please say hello at our presentations. We hope to see you there!
The ASHA Convention is always a great place to meet the people we interact with throughout the year. So if you are at the conference, are presenting, or have a booth, let us know, or come see one of our presentations.
We have a great line-up at this year’s ASHA Convention. We have three presentations–one Thursday, one Friday, and one Saturday. We don’t have a booth this year BUT Dynamic Resources (Booth #842) will both be carrying some of our books.

1235: Practical Dynamic Assessment – Using the Test-Teach-Test Model for Confident Qualification Decisions and Rapid Goal Writing (Seminar 1-hour)
Standardized tests give us a snapshot of students’ language abilities. However, they don’t tell us whether areas of difficulty are due to a lack of experience often related to socio-economic or cultural differences. Learn how to effectively implement 3-5-minute dynamic teaching sessions that yield powerful information to accurately diagnose children, choose goals, and determine necessary levels of support.
Scott Prath presents on Friday with Edwin Brown of Therapitas
