Part 2
Speech language pathologists are to employ the World Health Association’s International Classification of Functioning (ICF) in assessment and intervention. Using the ICF framework, SLPs assess children’s capacity (ability) to perform tasks in structured contexts and their participation (performance) of these skills in naturalistic contexts with others. By assessing play skills and language/social-emotional skills in play, SLPs are able to evaluate the skills children need for interaction and the ways and degree to which children use these skills in naturalistic contexts with others.
