Thursday 18th July, 8.30 – 9.00am – An overview of the CELF-5 language assessment with particular reference to assessing pragmatic skills (please note that this is a repeat of the CELF session delivered in the spring term)

Online, free of charge

This session will look at the potential for using the Clinical Evaluation of Language Fundamentals 5 (CELF-5) to assess the language of deaf learners from age 5 to 21 years. The CELF-5 allows us to assess deaf learners’ language holistically giving an overview of areas of strength and challenge. The updated CELF-5 has two additional sections to assess deaf learners’ pragmatics skills. The Pragmatics Profile is a checklist of speech intentions and the Pragmatics Activity Checklist provides activities to set up and use with the child, providing opportunities to observe what pragmatic skills they have and how they use these pragmatic skills. This session will give an overview of the CELF, with particular reference to the assessment of deaf learners’ pragmatic skills.
