Perspectives in the Assessment of Children's Speech

Five well-recognized interventionists and researchers in the area of phonology were asked, “In a typical 60–90 minute evaluation session with a child, what do you assess?” They were provided with a hypothetical case study and assessment plan, and their task was to respond with their own theories and models for conducting a 60–90 minute initial evaluation of the child’s speech and language. The result is an extraordinary discussion of theoretical frameworks and clinical practices.
