Developmental Early Childhood

Presenter(s): Chris Huzinec

Young children who have challenging behavior are more likely to continue to have problems with socialization, school success, and mental health concerns into adolescence and adulthood. This presentation examines how behavioral screeners and assessments, best practices in classroom management, evidence-based behavioral supports, and social/emotional learning instruction can be coordinated within a program to support children’s social, emotional, and behavior needs.

This webinar will provide an evidence-based framework for assessing and teaching relational concepts essential for learning and emotional regulation. Dr. Boehm will discuss how this is done with students with diverse needs, such as those with disrupted learning, autism spectrum disorder, visual or hearing loss, and cognitive challenges. Checklists and key references will be provided.

To learn the skills and concepts presented in the classroom, children must pay attention, register and assign meaning to information they see and hear, and store that information in memory. The transition from infancy to early childhood is associated with increased proficiency in tasks requiring attention, working memory, and cognitive flexibility, all of which help to predict rate of learning.

At this session, presenters will provide information that will enable participants to describe the differences between CELF Preschool-3 and PLS-5 and explain how clinicians can select the test that provides useful information about a child’s language skills. Using case studies, the presenter will describe differences in the type of data provided on each test and explain how differences in the format and content of the tests can contribute to score differences.
