Telehealth Tools Thursday - WAIS-IV & CELF-5
Coviu and Pearson Clinical have partnered to integrate the digital stimulus books of commonly used assessments into Coviu's video telehealth platform.
Every Thursday we will be talking about one psychology Pearson assessment and one speech pathology Pearson assessment that can enhance your video telehealth consultation.
PSYCHOLOGY TOOL: WAIS-IV A&NZ
The WAIS-IV A&NZ is used by psychologists and is the industry standard test to measure adult intelligence of Australian & New Zealander students.
SPEECH PATHOLOGY TOOL: CELF-5 A&NZ
The CELF-5 A&NZ helps speech pathologists
to conduct language assessments of Australian & New Zealander students.
According to clinical research, the geographical locations of the participants and that of the child clients who completed the CELF-5 telehealth assessment were mapped according to postcode. Visual inspection indicated that the locations of the child participants were far more widely dispersed than the participating speech-language pathologists.
One participant also noted the flexibility of using the CELF-5 via telehealth, which included the simultaneous use of the computer for other tasks during the assessment, "Being able to type the child’s responses for the Formulated Sentences subtest as I can type much faster than I can write".
The use of standardised language assessments via telehealth has been found to be valid and reliable under experimental conditions and the present study adds to this finding by exploring the practicalities and possibilities of completing CELF-5 language assessments in real-world conditions. (Sutherland et al. 2021)
