The process of writing a speech-language report can be a daunting task. Before we even start testing we have piles of documents from teachers, parents, and possibly other professionals. It is a tedious job to organize it into a coherent background section.

Next, we use a series of formal and informal measures to gather information about receptive language, expressive language, articulation, phonology, voice, fluency, and pragmatics. Information about language skills can be further divided into content and form. For bilingual students we address all of these areas in a second language as well. Many speech-language pathologists struggle with how to efficiently organize all of the information into a report that is as succinct as possible but still includes all of the necessary components.

In this workshop, we’ll provide a framework to efficiently organize both the background information and the data gathered from formal and informal measures. We’ll share tables, charts, verbiage, and strategies that will help you produce well-organized reports in less time.

Participants will:

Write a background section that includes all pertinent parent and teacher information
Identify strengths and weaknesses from formal and informal testing measures
Describe dynamic assessment outcomes to inform the reader about effective starting points and meaningful goals
