Difficulties with communication, language, and social skills are common concerns for individuals diagnosed with ASD. While some individuals’ communication and language difficulties are subtle, and other individuals are severe, early identification in all cases provides the best opportunity for improvement. During this webinar we will focus on assessments based on different ages and language ability levels.

SLPs Go Digital: The Digital Assessment Library for Schools for the Speech Language Pathologist Webinar (Recording)
Learn how your SLP team can use Pearson's Digital Assessment Library for Schools (DALS) to work more efficiently and effectively during this busy assessment season. See a demo of a speech sound assessment on Q-interactive® and preview "under the radar" assessments included in your Q-global® resource library.
This webinar will focus on the BBCS–4:R and BSRA–4, which are early childhood assessments used to assess children’s understanding of a wide range of language concepts used in daily classroom conversations, teacher directions, and school curricula.
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.
Strategies for Assessing and Teaching Essential Relational Concepts to Diverse Learners Webinar (Recording)
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.
The presenters will discuss interpreting Clinical Evaluation of Language Fundamentals, Preschool-3 results in the context of a comprehensive language assessment. Topics will include evaluating test scores as one part of the body of evidence for diagnostic decisions, interpreting score differences, and using assessment results to make recommendations for next steps for the child, family, and teacher.
To support your growing need for training in the area of remote service delivery, we invite you to join us as we host a second panel of Speech-Language Pathologist experts engaged in telepractice every day. Each panelist will share key lessons learned from their own years of telepractice experience and research in assessment, intervention, and consultation.
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.
Meeting the sensory processing and motor needs of individuals in educational settings is vital for participation and success. Challenges in these areas may underlie or exacerbate many social, behavioral and learning difficulties faced by students.
