7PM to 8PM
Advances in Preschool Language Sample Analysis (LSA)  (.1 ASHA CEUS; 1.0 Maryland Contact Hours)
Nan Bernstein Ratner, Professor, Fellow, Honors, ASHA and MSHA

New, free, easily-used computer-assisted LSA utilities are funded by the NIDCD to assist clinical practice.  This seminar shows SLPS how to access, use and interpret results from these utilities, which have evolved from the decades-old TalkBank initiative.  These utilities make LSA faster, more accurate and more informative than current practices.  Learner Outcomes:  Participants will understand how to access, install and use TalkBank utilities such as Kideval to perform LSA in everyday practice; participants will be able to compare costs, accuracy and informativeness of traditional and computer-assisted LSA; participants will be able to name additional LSA analyses that computer-assisted LSA enables beyond hand-computed traditional measures.

 This program is offered for .1 CEUs (Intermediate level, professional area).  ASHA CE Provider approval does not imply endorsement of course content, specific products, or clinical procedures.
