SLPs often complete informal screenings on students before a formal referral is completed. Every district has different guidelines on when an SLP can complete a screening. Some do whole class screenings for younger students at the beginning of the year and some do not. Sometimes a district does not want the SLP to screen a student until a formal referral has been completed and consent from the parents has been obtained. In this case, the teacher may need to conduct the screening or gather specific information on the child's articulation development to help determine whether a referral will be appropriate.
My screener was designed for SLP use, but also simplified enough that a classroom teacher could use it as a way of gathering more info for the SLP prior to the formal referral.
This product includes:
*Stimulus pictures for 47 target phonemes, including blends and clusters. Most phonemes have stimulus items for the target sound in word initial, medial, and final position (when applicable).
*A recording sheet with an area for the SLP to make notes/analyze the results to help plan future action.
