Assessing the language development of bilingual children can be a challenge--too often, children in the complex process of learning both Spanish and English are under- or over-diagnosed with language disorders. SLPs can change that with "SALT 2010 Bilingual S/E Version" for grades K-3, the first tool to comprehensively assess children's language progress in both English and Spanish. Derived from the SALT system that's been widely used and highly respected for more than 20 years, this bilingual version is everything professionals want in a Spanish/English language assessment tool. With this valid, easy-to-use tool, SLPs will accurately determine when a struggling student has an actual language disorder--and educators will be able to target their language instruction and improve children's literacy outcomes. This manual is divided into 8 parts: (1) Overview; (2) Elicit the Language Samples; (3) Transcribe the Language Samples; (4) Analyze the Language Samples; (5) Interpret the Results; (6) Hand-coded Analyses (NSS and SI); (7) Case Studies; and (8) Step-by-Step Lessons. Appended are: (1) Story Scripts; (2) Summary of SALT Transcription Conventions; (3) Spanish Character Set; and (4) List of Sample Transcripts and Audio Files. References and Index are also included.
