Articulation question- kindergarten

by Gabi
(Colorado Springs, Colorado )

Hi, I worked at a school and just recently received an email to screen a bunch of kindergarten students for articulation. I screened one yesterday that only had 3 errors in the screen that were not developmentally appropriate... he had many other errors but still developmentally appropriate...I am wondering whether I should wait until January to see if he improves? He is difficult to understand in connected speech by unfamiliar listeners... however, most of his errors are still developmentally appropriate. Help!!

I Would Qualify
by: Bridget

Personally, I will qualify a student based on intelligibility since that will effect academic performance and social skills.
