The Pre-School Language Scale-5 (PLS-5)
is a developmental norm-referenced assessment tool for a variety of functional and educational uses, including child assessment, evaluation, student academic placement, Individual Educational Plans (IEP’s), Individual Family Service Plans (IFSP’s), instructional planning, and to determine eligibility for early intervention and pre-school programs. Our on-line course will assist you and help ‘fast-track’ your learning curve,
so that you will more easily learn about this valuable instrument and how best to apply it to the children under your care.Similar to a Monarch or Cliff notes-type review, our online course and certification provides the essential information in a condensed and more easily digestible format. This course is a review and training module for the Pre-School Language Scale-5. It meets annual State Early Intervention requirements for continuing education hours in assessment and evaluation.
Differing from the older PLS-4 exam, the new PLS-5 includes new test items with growth scale values that ascend to 7;11; additional the articulation screener has been updated. The PLS-5
, administered over the course of 25-50 minutes, makes it easy for educators to assess expressive and receptive language delays of infants, toddlers, and children up to 6 years of age. In addition, the PLS-4 helps:
- Diagnose delays, disabilities, giftedness and other exceptionalities
- Determine present level of performance
- Write IFSP’s & IEP’s and monitor progress
- Yield standard scores, percentile ranks, language age equivalents
- Support alternate assessment needs
Prior to ordering this course, be sure to have a complete copy of the testing instrument, with all testing materials.
