Course Description

This one-day workshop will explore a variety of topics related to developing an understanding of language development and disorders in Spanish-English bilingual children. We will explore practical strategies and best practices for assessing Spanish-English bilingual children in educational settings. Topic areas will include:

  • Bilingual assessment procedures
  • Appropriate use of standardized tests
  • Parent questionnaires
  • Alternative assessment procedures of language sampling and dynamic assessment
  • Strategies for working with interpreters (both professional and “informal”)
  • OAR requirements for assessment and how it impacts interpretation, report writing, and documentation of assessment information
  • Expanding the assessment toolbox of SLPs who speak both Spanish and English or speak English only
  • A panel discussion to problem-solve professional and logistical issues within educational settings around bilingual assessment and treatment

Electronic handouts will be made available prior to the event.
