The Clinical Evaluation of Language Fundamentals (CELF-5) was designed to assess a student’s language and communication skills in a variety of contexts, determine the presence of a language disorder, describe the nature of the language disorder, and plan for intervention or treatment.
The Western Aphasia Battery – Revised (WAB-R) is the updated version of the highly respected and widely used instrument for assessing adult patients with aphasia.
It is an individually administered assessment for adults with acquired neurological disorders (e.g. as a result of a stroke, head injury or dementia). Like the previous edition, WAB-R assesses the linguistic skills most frequently affected by aphasia, in addition to key nonlinguistic skills and provides differential diagnosis information.

The Goldman-Fristoe Test of Articulation has been one of the most widely used tests of articulation for many years. This test provides a detailed profile of the child's articulation ability in words and connected speech.
This individually administered screening test helps you identify children who need further diagnostic testing to determine whether or not they have language deficits that will accelerate academic failure. In five minutes, you'll be able to identify a child who may fail academically because of a language deficit. The KLST-2 is a thorough, quick language screener based on the original KLST (used over 25 years). This revised edition contains updated items and new normative data. You will find this to be a user-friendly screening test that employs a number of psycholinguistically relevant tasks.
Feeding is the process involving any aspect of eating or drinking, including gathering and preparing food and liquid for intake, sucking or chewing, and swallowing (Arvedson & Brodsky, 2002). Feeding provides children and caregivers with opportunities for communication and social experience that form the basis for future interactions (Lefton-Greif, 2008).
Swallowing is a complex process during which saliva, liquids, and foods are transported from the mouth into the stomach while keeping the airway protected.
PLS™-5 Preschool Language Scales Fifth Edition offers a comprehensive developmental language assessment with items that range from pre-verbal, interaction-based skills to emerging language to early literacy.
The NRDLS provides diagnostic information about a child’s production and understanding of spoken language.
There are two scales in the NRDLS: one explores aspects of a child’s understanding of selected vocabulary items and grammatical features (the Comprehension Scale); and the other examines the child’s production of the same features of language (the Production Scale). Parallel sections within the scales aid comparison of a child’s comprehension and production skills.
Designed for use with patients with acquired brain damage. The standardization sample consisted primarily of patients with closed-head injuries; however, smaller percentages of patients with other brain damage were tested.
Stuttering Severity Instrument–Fourth Edition (SSI-4) is a reliable and valid norm-referenced stuttering assessment that can be used for both clinical and search purposes. It measures stuttering severity in both children and adults in the four areas of speech behavior:
3. physical concomitants
4. naturalness of the individual’s speech.
Intended to be used as part of a battery, the TAPS-3 measures what a child or adolescent does with what he or she hears. Results can help you diagnose auditory processing difficulties, imperceptions of auditory modality, language problems, and/or learning disabilities in both children and teens
