ESC Speech Pathology Webinar Series
Best Practices in Nonbiased Assessment of English Learners with Potential and Actual Language Impairment




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:


There is an increasing number of culturally and linguistically diverse students who are English Language Learners (ELLs) in America’s schools; many of these children come from backgrounds of poverty. Professionals frequently experience challenges with differentiating language differences from language impairments in ELs who are struggling in school. This workshop addresses non-biased assessment strategies and materials that can be used to differentiate language differences from language impairments in ELs from any linguistic background.
