Using Dynamic Assessment to Evaluate Children with Suspected Learning Disabilities
Moore-Brown, Barbara; Huerta, Maria; Uranga-Hernandez, Yvana; Pena, Elizabeth D.
Intervention in School and Clinic, v41 n4 p209-217 Mar 2006
Dynamic assessment uses a test-teach-retest approach that can assist clinicians in differentiating between children with learning disabilities and children with learning differences. This article describes a model of dynamic assessment of narratives and its use with children from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. Case studies illustrate how information from dynamic assessment can help determine the effects of experience on performance, distinguish between language impairment and language difference, and make accurate placement decisions.
