SPEECH/LANGUAGE EVALUATION
Student Name: Samara Bennett
Date(s) of Evaluation: 5/31/2016, 6/3/2016, 6/6/2016
Date of Birth: 10/13/2009
Age: 6;7
Speech/Language Pathologist: Lindsay Maslak, M.S., CCC-SLP/LIC
Reason for Evaluation: This speech and language evaluation was completed as part of Samara’s reevaluation review.
History of Speech/Language Therapy (include level of service, pertinent medical information, hearing status):
Samara is currently classified as a student with a Speech or Language Impairment (SLI) and is enrolled in an inclusive
education first grade classroom at Frazer School. She currently receives speech and language therapy 3 times each week
to improve her receptive/expressive language skills and her articulation skills.
The Clinical Evaluation of Language Fundamentals-Preschool (CELF-Preschool) and Goldman Fristoe Test of
Articulation (GFTA) were most recently administered to Samara in September 2013 to assess her articulation skills, as
well as her receptive and expressive language skills. At that time, she demonstrated a significant delay in her articulation
skills and a moderate delay in her receptive/expressive language skills. Since her original testing, Samara has demonstrated
steady progress with her speech and language skills. The results were as follows in 2013:
CELF-Preschool: Total Language-71
GFTA: Raw Score-17 errors
Observations/Academic Performance:
Samara willingly came with this evaluator and participated to her fullest potential throughout the speech and language
assessment. Samara’s evaluation is considered to be an accurate indication of her speech and language skills. She
independently asked for clarification and repetitions of questions, when possible, in order to fully understand what was
being asked of her. Her accuracy did improve with repetition and visual supports. Samara was able to easily initiate and
maintain a conversation during the testing and displayed a positive attitude toward testing. She does benefit from
encouragement when completing tasks, as she lacks confidence with her skills.
Samara is currently on a first grade level with her reading and math skills. She is a great student who can complete most
assignments independently. In the classroom, she can be very friendly and respectful, but does require reminders to increase
her volume so others can hear her.
Results of Cognitive Assessment: Samara’s cognitive abilities were most recently assessed June 2016 using the UNIT.
The results are as follows: Full Scale IQ-86.
Please refer to the full psychological report for specific details regarding Samara’s current and previous cognitive and
academic scores.
Oral-Peripheral Examination: Samara exhibits normal appearance and function of oral structures, which are adequate
for normal speech production.
