A Sweet Taste of Language Sampling:
The SUGAR Method for Early Childhood SLPs
Language Sample Analysis (LSA) is an important part of a comprehensive preschool speech and language assessment. It can also inform the selection of targets for intervention and be used to monitor progress. Yet, lack of time may be a barrier to its widespread use. You will leave this virtual three-part training prepared to use SUGAR— an easy, valid, evidence-based and totally cost-free language analysis method that can help make the routine use of LSA feasible for busy clinicians working in the preschool-kindergarten setting.
