There is an increasing number of culturally and linguistically diverse students who are English Language Learners (ELLs) in America’s schools; many of these children come from backgrounds of poverty. Professionals frequently experience challenges with differentiating language differences from language impairments in ELL students who are struggling in school. This workshop addresses nonbiased assessment strategies and materials that can be used to differentiate language differences from language impairments in ELL students from any linguistic background.
Describe how second language acquisition and bilingualism impact a child’s overall language development;
Explain how normal second language acquisition and bilingualism phenomena can masquerade as symptoms of a language impairment;
Summarize federal laws and guidelines pertaining to nonbiased assessment of ELL students;
Identify potential sources of bias on standardized language and IQ tests that are administered to ELL students;
Provide a rationale for the use informal, nonstandardized methods and materials for differentiating between language differences and language impairments in ELL students
Specifically describe the use of informal, nonstandardized methods and materials for differentiating between language differences and language impairments in ELL students
List suggestions for working effectively with interpreters; Apply information discussed in the workshop to actual case studies

Dr. Carol Westby
Social Communication and Theory of Mind Assessment and Intervention
August 3rd at 1:00pm PT, 4:00pm ET
Given the role of Theory of Mind (ToM) in social and academic functioning in children with language impairments, hearing loss, or autism and the recent rapid increase in our understanding of the neurological and environmental factors that contribute to ToM, it is important that and speech-language pathologists recognize delays and deficits in ToM and have strategies for assessing and developing ToM in persons they serve.
This presentation will (a) review current research documenting neural bases for emotional understanding and theory of mind, (b) describe the developmental stages of theory of mind from infancy through adolescence, and (c) demonstrate strategies that foster the types of social interactions that promote development of ToM and communicative competence. Participants will be able to evaluate infants’/toddlers, preschool, and school-age children’s level of ToM and provide justification for targeting ToM in intervention
- Summarize current research documenting neural bases for emotional understanding and Theory of Mind
- Describe the developmental stages of ToM from infancy through adolescence
- Assess ToM/pragmatic skills in children from infancy through adolescence
- Implement ToM/pragmatic intervention strategies based on ToM developmental levels in different populations including autism spectrum disorder, hearing loss, specific language impairment, ADHD, and conduct disorders
