Standards and Speech-Language Pathology:
Strategy for using standards to tailor your speech-language intervention
K-12 students with speech-language impairment must meet the expectations of the Standards of Learning. This session will focus on a strategy for analysis of the standards and other data sources to identify targets for speech-language intervention and development interventions.

Evidence-Based Practices in School-Based Assessment
This presentation will discuss evidence-based practices when selecting standardized assessments to assess and diagnose children suspected of having language impairment in school-based settings. Considerations will include reliability, validity, sensitivity, specificity, the purpose of the test, scoring considerations for speakers of various dialects, and the language and literacy areas included in the test.

It's ALL E-Z! Assessing Literate Language Essentials with Zip
This session will provide school speech language pathologists with guided practice in the analysis of literate language abilities. Using narrative language samples and school artifacts, participants will assess student use of vocabulary, elaborated noun phrases, embedded clauses, and verbs of cognition and communication. These assessment processes provide school-based data and SLP probes that support a comprehensive evaluation of student language abilities that are relevant to educational success.

Assistive Technology (AT) and Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC)
This session will focus on expanding the SLPs knowledge of assistive technology and communication systems. From "no" tech through low, mid- and high-tech, participants will have an opportunity to have "hands on" experiences with AT.

Resources for Bringing Curriculum into Therapy
According to the VDOE Speech Language Pathology Services in Schools: Guidelines for Best Practices, SLPs are to be providing services that are "curriculum-based, outcome-oriented, integrated with educational activities, and designed to ensure access to the general curriculum so the child can be successful in mastering the Standards of Learning." This session is geared towards exploring resources that can help school-based SLPs access, modify and create activities that incorporate SOLs into speech-language sessions.
