Expressive and Receptive Language Development: Informal Assessment
During the Informal Assessment, teachers use verbal prompting to develop expressive and receptive language by using the phrase, “What did the video say….” This helps students strengthen auditory processing and comprehension over time by attending to the content of the video and then recalling the concept when prompted. Using the phrase “What did the video say…” also makes the expectation clear that we are no longer accessing prior knowledge. By strengthening auditory processing and comprehension, students will increase their ability to follow a multi-step directive, such as a task that may be verbally described in the workplace.
