Registration: 8:45 am
Presentation: 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Target Audience: Speech & Language Pathogists
Presenter: The Speech Pathology Group
In this presentation, participants will become familiar with typical bilingual language development and learn how the grammatical and phoenitic structure of language may influence language. Participants will also understand how the stages of bilingual language acquisition can affect testing outcomes that may lead to over-identification. California Education Code will be discussed and therapists will learn when testing is needed in primary language. In addition, resources will be provided that will assist participants in determining language difference vs disorder when an interpreter or standardized test is not available.
ASHA CEUs are available; If you are interested, please speak with the presenter.
