This fully photocopiable resource offers a flexible framework for the assessment and measurement of the communication skills of children with autistic spectrum disorders (ASDs). Packed with practical assessment and planning sheets, it enables teachers, educators and other professionals to observe and record how children use and understand language, and to follow their progress over time. The completed assessment record is an accessible summary of a child's individual communication style, identifying strengths and weaknesses and the ways in which he or she is best assisted and motivated to communicate. It focuses on how children express themselves in everyday situations - for example, how they make requests or gain attention, the words they use most frequently, and how their communication is affected by different people and places. Most importantly, it provides a diagnosis of where communication skills can be developed and improved. Using the communication curriculum, educators can set appropriate targets, linked to work in other areas, such as literacy and science. A separate thinking skills curriculum aims to develop the skills and confidence necessary for social interaction, from making simple choices to understanding humour and abstract ideas. Originally devised for use with children with ASDs, this toolkit is equally effective in identifying communication problems in other children, and is an invaluable resource for teachers and speech and language therapists.

"Identifying children with language impairments has grown increasingly complex as a result of rapid and revolutionary progress in the field of communicative disorders. In Assessment of Communication and Language, leading experts in the field analyze the implications of advances in research and theory and suggest improvements to widely used methods and practices. Some of the important issues they discuss are who should be tested for speech/language disorders; how to adapt methods for children from multicultural backgrounds; what to do when English is a child's second language; the pros and cons of norm-referenced tests and criterion-referenced tests; new ways to use parent report; better methods for evaluating narrative discourse skills; what kinds of tests to use to develop an intervention plan; the best methods for verifying program progress; and new discoveries about language acquisition." "This comprehensive guide to communication and language assessment provides speech-language pathologists, psychologists, researchers, interventionists, special educators, and students with invaluable information and helpful strategies for integrating theoretical and practical advances into their daily work."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
