New Product Giveaway: Comprehensive Literacy Checklist For School-Aged Children

Share Button

I wanted to start the new year right by giving away a few copies of a new checklist I recently created entitled: “Comprehensive Literacy Checklist For School-Aged Children“.

It was created to assist Speech Language Pathologists (SLPs) in the decision-making process of how to identify deficit areas and select assessment instruments to prioritize a literacy assessment for school aged children.

The goal is to eliminate administration of unnecessary or irrelevant tests and focus on the administration of instruments directly targeting the specific areas of difficulty that the student presents with.

*For the purpose of this product, the term “literacy checklist” rather than “dyslexia checklist” is used throughout this document to refer to any deficits in the areas of reading, writing, and spelling that the child may present with in order to identify any possible difficulties the child may present with, in the areas of literacy as well as language.

This checklist can be used for multiple purposes.

1. To identify areas of deficits the child presents with for targeted assessment purposes

2. To highlight areas of strengths (rather than deficits only) the child presents with pre or post intervention

3. To highlight residual deficits for intervention purpose in children already receiving therapy services without further reassessment

    First of all, your products are always professionally relevant and well done, so to win this assessment would be wonderful. Second, I agree with the premise of the assessment; avoiding unnecessary and tedious testing. Sometimes it seems we test without adequate consideration of the impact on our students/clients.

    You know I am an avid fan of your materials! Here in France, on the border with Switzerland and Germany, I would be delighted to use this resource to help myself and colleagues in the area of multilingual literacy development as well!

    Great info, esp that your work is EBP. I share your site with colleagues frequently.
