Thank you to Twin Speech Language & Literacy
for hosting this great linky focusing on speech and language screeners. There are so many times when I have needed a quick screener and just didn’t have time to search for a good one. Now I won’t have to search because there are several SLP bloggers who have linked up to share their screeners. I have an articulation screener that I use often and wanted to share, too. My screener is designed to be used by other SLPs, as well as classroom teachers who are in the process of gathering information for a possible referral […]
SLPs often complete informal screenings on students before a formal referral is completed. Every district has different guidelines on when an SLP can complete a screening. Some do whole class screenings for younger students at the beginning of the year and some do not. Sometimes a district does not want the SLP to screen a student until a formal referral has been completed and consent from the parents has been obtained. In this case, the teacher may need to conduct the screening or gather specific information on the child’s articulation development to help determine whether a referral will be appropriate.
My screener was designed for SLP use, but also simplified enough that a classroom teacher could use it as a way of gathering more info for the SLP prior to the formal referral.
This product includes:
*Stimulus pictures for 47 target phonemes, including blends and clusters. Most phonemes have stimulus items for the target sound in word initial, medial, and final position (when applicable).
*A recording sheet with an area for the SLP to make notes/analyze
the results to help plan future action.
*A phoneme development chart to use as reference.
*Detailed instructions for teacher use
(SLPs may want to use the screener more specifically).
