Thank you to everyone who wrote in last week and shared
their experiences, preferences and reactions to the various testing materials
available to us as SLPs. I really enjoy hearing everyone's perspective and
feedback! I wanted to continue the discussion this week by asking a few more

This fall at
the preschool where I practice, we have had an unusually high number of
children in need of full evaluations all for various reasons. For some, they

in our district. For others, we had decided as a team that several children
were in need of a ...
