Forms for Back to School Assessment Preparation

Share Button

Back to school time is just around the corner and if your job is anything like mine then you are getting ready to perform a number of speech language screenings and assessments after the kids get back to school in September.  In order to optimize the assessment process I’ve created a number of checklists and forms for my (and your convenience). They allow for quick and efficient determination of whether the preschool/school age monolingual/bilingual student in question requires any speech language services including: screening, assessment, future follow-up, or on-going monitoring. Please note that for bilingual students it is recommended that parents mark whether the child presents with deficits in one language or in both on the checklists (e.g., mark R, E, or B – Russian, English or both).

  • R  difficulty following 3+step directions containing concepts of time or location (before/after/to the left)
  • E  difficulty understanding basic concepts in the classroom
  • B  difficulty responding appropriately to simple questions (who/what/where/when)

Speech Language Assessment Checklist For A Preschool Child is a 9 page guide created to assist speech language pathologists in the decision making process of how to select assessment instruments and prioritize assessment for preschool children 3:00-5:11 years of age. The goal is to eliminate administration of unnecessary or irrelevant tests and focus on the administration of instruments directly targeting the areas of difficulty that the child presents with.
