  • PLS-5 & CELF Preschool-2: Matching Assessment to a Child's Language Profile

    Presenter: Adam Scheller, Ph.D.

    While the Preschool Language Scale-5 (PLS-5) and CELF Preschool-2 are both used to assess semantics, morphosyntax, pragmatics, and emerging literacy skills in young children, the tests provide different information about a child’s pattern of language strengths and weaknesses. This session will provide clinicians with information about differences in the tests’ purpose and design, guidelines for selecting the appropriate test based on referral concerns, and interpretation of test results. At the end of this session, clinicians will be able to select the appropriate test based on a child’s language ability and correctly interpret test results, enabling clinicians to set targeted programming recommendations for the young children they assess.
