View Free Webinar to Learn How to Use Visual Communication and Sign Language (VCSL) Checklist

VCSL Checklist Invitation

On October 16, 2017, 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. the Early Education and Literacy Lab (EL2), one of four resource hubs at the NSF-Gallaudet University Science of Learning Center on Visual Language and Visual Learning (VL2) will host a live, free webinar to introduce the Visual Communication and Sign Language Checklist (VCSL) and the companion VCSL:O, an online assessment system that allows evaluations to be conducted electronically, with automated scoring, reporting, and data storage. Interpreters will be provided.

The VCSL is the first standardized assessment tool that documents language growth and identifies gaps or delays in typical language development in children between birth and five years of age.  It assists teachers and early childhood education service providers in planning language development activities for individual children.  

Featured panelists:
Laurene Simms, Ph.D., Gallaudet University
Sharon Baker, Ed.D., The University of Tulsa
M. Diane Clark, Ph.D., Lamar University
