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

investigates both a child’s understanding of language and expressive communication, in
addition to the child’s speech sounds

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

consistent versus inconsistent phonological disorders
