ASHA Course Code: Service Delivery Associated with Speech, Language, Hearing and Related Disorders – 7010
Work effectively with special education professionals who are testing students for learning disabilities, autism, and emotional disturbance. Learn to improve your referrals, improve the interactions on your campus, and reduce the amount of testing time that results in no qualification.
This presentation is a collaborative conversation between a speech pathologist and an educational diagnostician (LSSP Licensed Specialist in School Psychology in Texas). We discuss the similarities and differences between Receptive Language Delay and Difficulties with Listening Comprehension and between Expressive Language Delay and Difficulties with Oral Expression. We then explore reasons why we may obtain (apparently) conflicting testing results. Data from a research study sheds light on the commonalities among referrals that were most appropriate.
