Abstract

This article illustrates how speech-language pathologists (SLPs) can use language sampling and growth curve modeling (GCM) to examine the language growth rates of English Language Learners. GCM data on language samples provides SLPs with powerful, new tools to evaluate actual progress over time instead of relying on single, static measurement endpoints to determine typical development.
