Auditory Verbal Therapy: Part 9

Auditory Verbal Therapy: Part IX

Principle IX
Administer ongoing formal and informal diagnostic assessments to develop individualized Auditory-Verbal treatment plans, to monitor progress, and to evaluate the effectiveness of the plans for the child and family.

Every therapy session should be diagnostic in nature.  This means that the therapist should always be alert to the child's progress and performance in listening, language, and speech.  Standardized tests should always be administered every 6 months.  A great standardized test that looks at listening, language, and speech is the Cottage Acquisition Scale for Listening, Language, and Speech (CASLLS).
