T15 - Teacher Identification of Kindergarteners at Risk for Language-Learning Disabilities


Oct 27, 2016 11:45am ‐ Oct 27, 2016 12:45pm

Description

Teachers must learn to recognize the signs of learning difficulties so children can receive services to address their learning needs. We explored teachers’ impressions of kindergartners’ pre-literacy, speech, and language skills as compared to a screening battery. We explored (a) agreement of teachers’ impressions to the screening battery, and (b) teacher-level factors that influenced teachers’ impressions. In this presentation, we provide recommendations for outreach and professional development to improve teachers’ identification of children at risk for language-learning disabilities.
