It was nice to know that PCC seems to be the best standard for measurement; however, it's disappointing to know that the evidence on even that is still quite thin.

This text course really provided me with some "food for thought" as I think about how I measured severity of students with SSD in the past. Really good information.

subject content
Review by: Member on September 26, 2012
It had a good alternative to PCC for assessments. I was suprised to find there were not as many research articles on using intelligibility or other measures for less subjective classification of severity.
Review by: Member on September 25, 2012
It provided a useful tool (i.e., the PCC in Imitated Sentences) for determining severity and a rationale for using the tool.
Review by: Member on September 24, 2012
Very thorough and evidence based

The material was easy to follow and the course provided useful information about measuring severity in SSD. I will be able to use what I have learned in my therapy this week.
Review by: Member on September 22, 2012
Interesting perspective.....especially since most parents interpret severity in their own way and then don't understand why their children don't meet eligibility requirements!!!

Review by: Member on September 22, 2012
