CELF-5 (Clinical Evaluation of Language Fundamentals) Language assessment

 

* For ages 5-21;11

- A combination of 5 key sections assessing a different component of language, yet all
contributing to the overall picture of a person’s language ability
- 5 key sections include core language, receptive language, expressive language,
language content and language memory 

 

Provides an assessment for receptive and expressive language. Can determine if a language disorder is present, the nature of the disorder and its severity. This assessment is norm-referenced so can compare a clients speech to typically developing children of the same age

* For ages 5-21;11

PLS-5 (The Preschool Language Scales Fifth Edition) Language assessment + articulation (speech) screener

 

* For ages birth - 7;11

A comprehensive, interactive and play-based developmental language assessment that
investigates both a child’s understanding of language and expressive communication, in
addition to the child’s speech sounds
- 3 sections include: auditory comprehension, expressive communication and total
language score

This is an interactive, play-based assessment that determines if a language disorder is present. It can also provide information on a child's interaction, attention, gestures, vocalisations, play skills and literacy (e.g. letter naming etc). This assessment is norm-referenced so can compare a clients speech to typically developing children of the same age.

DEAP (Diagnostic Evaluation of Articulation and Phonology) Speech Assessment

* for ages 3- 6;11


Detects and differentiates between articulation problems, delayed phonology and
consistent versus inconsistent phonological disorders
- Provides the clinician with the sounds that a child can and cannot produce, or is not
producing, and gives an overview of their oral-motor skills

Provides assessment for articulation, phonology, promotor ability and inconsistency of a speech disorder, thus it assists with differential diagnosis of speech disorders. This assessment is norm-referenced so can compare a clients speech to typically developing children of the same age.
