Course Description

Credit Validation for Slingerland Participants Only

This course offers an introduction to the Slingerland Screening Procedures, Forms A, B, C, and D for students. These procedures, developed by Beth H. Slingerland, help identify students with specific language disabilities. The sooner these children are identified, the sooner remediation can begin. The tests also aid in identifying students who will benefit from structured multi-sensory instruction and whose current language difficulties may continue beyond periods of development or maturational lag and become persistent specific language disabilities in later grades.

Course Objectives:

  • Learn how to administer, score, and evaluate the Slingerland Screening Procedures (Forms A, B, C, and D)
  • Learn how to use the results of the Slingerland Screenings for referral or remediation
  • Understand how the results of the screening can assist in making instructional decisions for students and/or classes
  • Learn how to identify strengths and weaknesses in language learning
  • Learn how to manage the schedule, environment and sequence of the subtests
