The CELF-5 Assessment Process
CELF-5 assessment process reflects current trends in the field. In addition to managing full time caseloads, SLPs are increasingly collaborating with classroom teachers, psychologists and other specialists to identify supports for students having difficulty meeting curriculum objectives. Often this involves examining the link between the student’s oral and written language skills, with the SLP working with the classroom teacher to plan and implement activities in a Response to Intervention framework.
In addition, there is increased focus on social language skills in mainstream classrooms (e.g., social/behavioral targets in core curriculum). In addition, increasing numbers of students with autism and Asperger’s Syndrome are being referred for examination of social language skills. The expanded look at pragmatic language skills and the addition of written language tests in CELF-5 reflects these trends.
