ESC Speech Pathology Webinar Series
Best Practice for the Use of Standardized Assessment Tools for Speech-Language Evaluations with Considerations for Remote Administration

This interactive webinar series has proven to be an excellent source of continuing education for many speech pathologists and other school staff since 2012. In this series, we are once again offering high-quality learning opportunities, so speech pathologists and speech pathology assistants can improve upon their existing skill set. Developed through the thoughtful collaboration of ALL twenty education service centers, we have secured respected presenters to deliver timely and high-level learning topics, all conveniently delivered to your computer/device.  The more informed you are, the better prepared you are to serve your students.  Join us throughout the school year for any one, a few, or all of our SLP webinars.

Important Session Information:

This workshop will address best practices for administering standardized measures of  receptive language, expressive language, pragmatic language, and articulation and phonology  skills. We will review the psychometric properties of tests, discuss why the metrics differ  between language tests and speech tests, discuss the meaning of sensitivity and specificity calculations, and describe what to look for when selecting a measure. We will discuss ways to  interpret test results and consider the impact of cultural and linguistic diversity in the testing  process. We will address the use of these tools in both face-to-face and remote formats. 

This webinar is approved for 2.5 TSHA CEUs.  Registered participants will receive handouts and a link specific to the upcoming webinar with instructions to connect from the home or work computer/device prior to the event.
