Increase your confidence when making diagnostic decisions for bilingual students.

Evaluating students from second language backgrounds is a complex process, as communication concerns can be related to second language influence or a true disorder. This decision carries a lot of weight, as a misguided diagnosis can increase caseload size, subject a student to unneeded services, or deny services to a bilingual child who truly needs them.

This course provides tools for interpreting scores when your student is not well represented in the test norms and provides helpful resources for obtaining language samples and other informal, holistic testing procedures.
