This book is a practical compendium of assessment instruments and intervention ideas for school-based speech-language pathology who are eager to take their practice beyond traditional language tests and caseload concerns. The manual focuses on three areas of language where language impaired children in elementary school need particular help: phonological awareness, narrative skills, and advanced literacy skills (identifying and stating the main idea, for example). Inside, the reader will find non-standardized assessment tasks, sample interventions activities, sample goals, and objectives and sample lesson plans. These tools provide a framework onto which the clinician can graft activities and materials appropriate for individual children. This is a practical, useful, reality based book of assessment tasks and intervention ideas. It will also provide ideas for helping children who lack these abilities, for writing appropriate goals and objectives and for sharing information about the child's progress with teachers and parents.
