The number of children who present with non-spectrum emotional, behavioral, and psychiatric disturbances (oppositional defiant disorder, mood disorder, etc) has been steadily increasing in recent years. Many of these children attend district schools as well as receive services through private providers. Due to high incidence of communication issues associated with these conditions, speech language pathologists are frequently among the professionals who assess them. This presentation is aimed at increasing the participants’ knowledge regarding the role of speech language pathologists in the assessment of social pragmatic language abilities of school-age children with psychiatric impairments.

I treat middle school students with social skill deficiencies and she hits the nail on the head. I see all the time exactly what she describes as the high functioning student who does very well on a standardized measure yet fails to be a good social thinker. Excellent presentation....especially with the point on the need of a Narrative.
Tatyana presented very useful information, particularly regarding her experience with varying assessments. Her rate of speech was fast at times which made it difficult to understand parts of her presentation.
