Diagnostics are the key to appropriate identification and dismissal of students from speech language services. There are many tools that are used in an effective assessment. Two tools that are useful for SLP to determine a student’s current level of functioning and to plan intervention or dismissal are place voice manner charting (PVM) and intelligibility measures. Use of PVM charting is a quick way to determine the skills in a student’s sound system and to reflect upon these skills in order to select evidence based treatment methods. In addition to PVM analysis, taking intelligibility measures is a quick and effective way to assess the student’s communication skills. This session will be hands on practice to effectively take data utilizing these two methods and how to document the data appropriately.


Participants will:

  1. State 3 diagnostic uses for intelligibility measures.
  2. Complete 3 intelligibility measure calculations with less than one error.
  3. Complete 2 PVM charts based on a case studies.
  4. State 3 places that PVM charting and intelligibility measures are documented in a student’s IEP and other paperwork.
