Using the CELF-5 A&NZ Screener – Practical Classroom Strategies for Screening, Intervention and Support

23rd August, 2021 @ 9:00 am

This event is fully booked.  Please email Rae Dawkins if you would like to be placed on a waitlist.

Language development is foundational to literacy development, from learning to read to communicating orally and in print. Learning occurs mainly through language. The CELF-5 A&NZ Fifth Edition Screening Test supports teachers in quickly and accurately screening children and young people (ages 5 years to 21 years 11 months) who may be experiencing language difficulties.

The workshop is intended to build capacity to use the CELF-5 in order to:

  • identify students who may require further testing by a Speech Pathologist
  • provide information regarding language profiles of students, supporting intentional planning for a range of students and intervention where required
  • focus on teaching and learning strategies that foster supportive language environments for all students, including strategies to support students who are not typically developing or are at-risk.

Christine D’Arcy is a Speech Pathologist with specific interest and experience in working with school-age students. Christine has worked with the Department for Education as part of the Secondary Learners Directorate, providing support and training to secondary schools with a focus on supporting students with language-based learning difficulties.
