Thank you for taking the time to read this email. We are researchers from California State University, Sacramento who are studying the assessment practices of speech-language pathologists (SLPs) working with English language learning (ELL) students. This study is, in part, an extension of the research conducted by Roseberry-McKibbin, Brice, and O'Hanlon (2005) and Roseberry and Eicholtz (1994) in which SLPs were surveyed on various issues pertaining to the speech-language assessment and treatment practices of ELL students. This survey seeks to 1) establish the current practices of SLPs who assess ELL students suspected of language impairments and 2) determine whether the practices of SLPs assessing ELL students has changed in the 10 and 20 years since the Roseberry et.al. (1994; 2005) studies, and 3) provide information to educators training undergraduate and graduate students as well as SLPs working with ELL students.
We have full IRB approval (Sacramento State IRB can be reached at (916) 278-3667) and each SLP's participation is voluntary.
