Last month, we highlighted a couple articles from ASHA’s Special Interest Group 1 about progress monitoring for language. Even more on that topic to share now! (Heads up: ASHA Journals’ website got a facelift! So don’t get confused when you click out!)
What are we looking for in a good progress monitoring tool? Lots of stuff, as it turns out. Check out the flowchart on page 183 for an overview.
Needing direction for your language therapy with older students? Read this one through for a hypothetical case study of assessment, goal-setting, intervention, and progress monitoring for an adolescent with DLD. Yes, language sampling is involved!
Check this one out for a suggestion and example of a dynamic assessment task you could use with your older students who are struggling with morphologically complex, academic language.
