Hello! You have found your Speech and Language Assessment Report Fairy Godmother! (insert that gif of the guy throwing glitter)
Here is a report I wrote (6/2018) for a kiddo who is in 3rd grade, and had a COMPLEX mental health history, history of destructive and aggressive behaviors in class and at home, and a child who was hospitalized involuntarily (5150) 2x in one school year, for 20+ days at a time.
This child was diagnosed with bipolar, oppositional defiance disorder, and ADHD. Guardian was angry with school district for not being able to “handle him”. At his initial psycho-ed eval, he was non compliant to participate in any testing, and eligibility resulted from observations and information provided by teacher and parent (he was also non-compliant to test with the OT). This template would be good to use for a kid with a complex mental health diagnosis, with difficult behaviors that are not the result of a pragmatic language impairment.
Also, guess who’s the Speech Ninja? aka the ONLY district employee able to get this kiddo to take a standardized assessment? It’s ME. I bribed him with Takis, and he completed the OWLS-2 Expressive)
I met Josh in the middle of the school year after he was enrolled in my school Emotional Disturbance ED- SDC. Guardian was convinced this kid has a pragmatic impairment secondary to Autism. Guardian put in writing – from her attorneys office- that she wanted a speech/language assessment because the school district failed to recognize and identify his pragmatic language impairment, and that all of his behavioral records should be expunged as they were a result of this undiagnosed and treated impairment.
At the meeting, there was a court appointed advocate representing the child, as well as guardian and her attorney, the school site IEP team members, and a special-ed district admin (12 adults).
My assessment report was written using legally defensible language, and includes the following:
Background: reason for referral (questions taken straight from the signed AP)
Summary of mental health history
Summary of District Nurses report from Psycho-ed Eval
Summary of Psycho-ed eval and eligibility
Summary of discipline documented in student’s records
Information from guardian, current teacher and previous teacher related to pragmatics
3 separate classroom observations described in detail
OWLS-2 Expressive results and discussion.
Language sample discussion
Summary and conclusion of DNQ using legally defensible language.
Appendix including OWLS-2, CELF-5 description and test scores, 78 utterance language sample (worth reading- non censored LOL)
I hope you find these useful and helpful :)
