Assessment of oral language and behaviour
Prepared by YANG, Chi Cheung Ruby, Department of English, HKIEd
Guidelines for Observing Oral Communication
Speech disorders affect the clarity, voice quality, and fluency of a child’s spoken words.
Language disorders affect a child’s ability to hold meaningful conversations, understand others, and express thoughts through spoken or written word.
Screening for Speech Disorders
Mini-dialogues and role plays
Total physical response (TPR) tasks
In pairs/small groups, discuss some ways in which your school/department could involve pupils with special educational needs more fully in learning oral language. Remember to justify your decisions.
Try to list the sources that a teacher can collect information about his/her student’s current and past classroom behavior.
Describing the Target Behavior
Identifying Factors That Influence the Behavior
Generating a Hypothesis
Functional Behavioral Analysis
Identify a student in your class who has behavioural problems. Then try to use Functional Behavioural Analysis to analyse your student’s behaviour. Be prepared to share with other participants.
