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

16th October, 2020 @ 9:00 am


16/10/2020 - 9:00 am - 12:00 pm


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.  This 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 of 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.
