Abstract

In this paper, we discuss the Spelling Sensitivity System (SSS), an accuracy metric basedon the level of linguistic knowledge evidenced by student spellings. The procedure can beused by SLPs to baseline and monitor their students' progress associated with word-levelliteracy instruction. The SSS has the relative speed of a binary scoring system yetincorporates facets of the multilinguistic theory of spelling development. Use of the SSS system to represent baseline performance and monitor progress of the clinical case isillustrated.
