Auditory Processing Abilities Test [APAT]
Deborah Ross-Swain, Nancy Long
The Auditory Processing Abilities Test (APAT) is a norm-referenced
auditory processing battery for use with children ages 5-0 through 11-11.
It is comprised of 10 subtests that quantify a child's performance in
various areas of auditory processing. The battery is designed primarily
to be used by speech-language pathologists but may also be used
by other professionals such as learning disability specialists, psychologists, resource specialists,
and others who are trained in test administration and are interested in
evaluating the auditory processing skills of children. The APAT is
individually administered and can be completed and scored in less than

Hodson Assessment of Phonological Patterns - Third Edition [HAPP-3]
Barbara Williams Hodson
The HAPP-3, as well as its predecessors (APP, 1980; APP-R, 1986), was designed for children with highly unintelligible speech. Some major improvements include provision of normative data and technical information, stimulus words and phonetic transcriptions that have been updated and internationalized, and comprehensive evaluation analysis forms that are larger and "user friendly."
The HAPP-3 Comprehensive Phonological Evaluation can be administered in less than 20 minutes. Objects and a few pictures are used to elicit 50 stimulus words. HAPP-3 results are used for coding and categorizing phonological deviations, determining severity intervals/ratings (mild, moderate, severe, profound) along a continuum, identifying major phonological patterns that need to be targeted (for goal statement), and obtaining scores for documenting treatment effects over time (for evidence-based practice.)
The Examiner's Manual includes explicit instruction for administering and analyzing
the HAPP-3 on an individual basis with tables for converting Raw Scores to Ability
Scores and Percentiles, for ages 3 to 8 years.

Lindamood-Bell Auditory Conceptualization Test - Third Edition [LAC-3]
Patricia C. Lindamood, Phyllis Lindamood
The LAC-3 is an individually administered, norm-referenced assessment that
measures an individual’s ability to perceive and conceptualize speech
sounds using a visual medium. Because of the importance of these auditory skills
to reading, the results are helpful for speech-language pathologists,
special educators, and reading specialists. The LAC-3
also measures the cognitive ability to distinguish and manipulate sounds, which
success in reading and spelling requires. This third edition of the LAC has
been improved considerably. Three new categories of items that relate to multisyllabic
processing have been added. The availability of standard scores for the LAC-3
total score is a desirable new feature.

Photo Articulation Test - Third Edition [PAT-3]
Barbara A. Lippke, Stanley E. Dickey, John W. Selmar, Anton L. Soder
The Photo Articulation Test - Third Edition (PAT-3) is a completely revised edition of the popular Photo Articulation Test. To administer the PAT-3, the examiner simply points to each consecutive numbered photograph and asks the child, "What is this?" The child's response is scored on the Summary/Response Form to indicate the presence or absence of errors. The elicited sounds are arranged by age of acquisition. The Summary/ Response Form groups the sounds by the ages at which 90% of the sample correctly articulated the sounds. All sounds that are tested are written in the international phonetic alphabet. In addition, consonant sounds are differentiated into the initial, medial, and final positions within the stimulus words. The results from the PAT-3 provide the clinician with a straightforward comprehensive view of each student's articulation errors. Some of the new features of the PAT-3 include full-color photos used to elicit words; stimulus pictures that appeal to students; quick test administration; and easily scored and interpreted test results. Testing time is 20 minutes on an individual basis for ages 3-6 through 9 years.Complete

Preschool Language Assessment Instrument - Second Edition [PLAI-2]
Marion Blank, Susan A. Rose, Laura J. Berlin
The Preschool Language Assessment Instrument - Second Edition
(PLAI-2) is a revision of a classic test of children's discourse
abilities. Normed on a sample of 463 children residing in 16 states,
PLAI-2 is based on a model of classroom discourse that emphasizes the
ability of children to respond effectively to the teacher's questions
and commands at varying levels of abstraction. Rather than pinpointing
discrete language structures or specific vocabulary items that may
require therapy, PLAI-2 results tell how effectively a child integrates
knowledge of vocabulary, concepts, and language structures to deal with
the full range of exchanges in classroom discourse. Teachers and speech-language clinicians alike will appreciate the ease-of-use and pragmatic information this test provides.
Receptive One-Word Picture Vocabulary Test - 4 [ROWPVT-4]

Stuttering Severity Instrument - Fourth Edition [SSI-4]
Glyndon D. Riley
The Stuttering Severity Instrument - Fourth Edition measures stuttering severity in both children and adults in the four areas of speech behavior:frequency, duration, physical concomitants, and naturalness of the individual's speech. Frequency is expressed in percent syllables stuttered and converted to scale scores of 2-18. Duration is timed to the nearest one tenth of a second and converted to scale scores of 2-18. The four types of Physical Concomitants are converted to scale scores of 0-20.
The Instrument was normed on a sample of 72 preschool-aged children,
139 school-aged children, and 60 adults. It has four components, each
of which is used to assess and monitor the stuttering severity in both
children - 2 years of age and older - and adults for clinical and research
Test of Adolescent and Adult Language - Fourth Edition [TOAL-4]

Test of Auditory Processing Skills - 3rd Edition [TAPS-3]
Nancy Martin, Rick Brownell
The TAPS-3 represents a very thorough reshaping of the Test of Auditory Perceptual Skills, Revised (previously authored by M. Gardner). The most obvious change is that there are no longer two "levels" of the test - the TAPS-3 offers seamless coverage for ages 4 through 18 years. The TAPS-3 measures what a person does with what is heard, and is intended to be used along with other tests as part of a battery. It is designed to be used by speech-language pathologists, audiologists, school psychologists, and other testing professionals.
The order of the subtests reflects a developmental progrssion of tasks from easiest to most difficult. Four new subtests have been added: Phonological Segmentation, Phonological Blending, Auditory Comprehension, and Auditory Reasoning (this replaces the Auditory Processing subtest from previous editions). New items were developed for many subtests, while some existing test items were retained. The content for other subtests has been completely revised; for example, the last subtest, Auditory Reasoning, contains all new items specifically designed to tap auditory cohesion, a higher-order process. An optional Audity Figure-Ground task has also been added as a supplemental subtest presented via CD to flag attentinon problems and give feedback about how the child's auditory processing system works in "real-world" situations. The subtests are:
There are also notable differences in how scores are derived and the types of scores obtained. The use of partial credit in some subtests reflects more accurately the child's auditory abilities. In addition to one overall score, individual subtest scores are combined to derive three cluster scores: Basic Auditory Skills (Word Discrimination, Phonological Segmentation, and Phonolgical Blending subtests), Auditory Memory (Number Memory Forward, Number Memory Reversed, Word Memory, and Sentence Memory subtests), and Auditory Cohesion (Auditory Comprehension and Auditory Reasoning subtests). The introductory chapter of this manual presents and updated literature review.
The TAPS-3 remains an untimed test, can still be completed in about one hour and can be scored in about 15-20 minutes. Detailed scoring criteria are provided, with alternate acceptable answers when applicable. The TAPS-3 norms are now nationally stratified to match as closedly as possible the demographics shown in the latest US Census with regard to gender, ethnicity, residence, geographic location, and parent educational level. Norms are based data from over 2000 sudents. Indibidual subtests are reported as scaled scores, whille cluster scores (Phonological Skills, Memory, and Cohesion) and the overall score are reported standard scores; percentile ranks and age equivalents are also provided.Complete
Test of Auditory Processing Skills - Third Edition, Spanish Bilingual [TAPS-3:SBE]
The new Spanish version of the Test of Auditory Processing Skills-Third Edition is not a translation but provides separate norms that are based on Spanish-speaking children in the United States.
The structure of the test is similar to the English version but with allowances made for language and grammar differences. Notably, the subtest in the English version that utilized compound words was eliminated because such words are extremely rare in Spanish, and new sentences with idioms were developed.
While the test is administered in Spanish to ages 5 years to 19 years and the responses are expected to be in Spanish, the examiner may use English to give directions, and English responses may be accepted if the meaning is the same as the intended response. Subtest scoring is the same as in the TAPS-3, allowing partial credit in order to reflect more accurately the child's processing abilitiy.Complete
Test of Auditory Reasoning and Processing Skills [TARPS]
Morrison F. Gardner
The Test of Auditory Reasoning and Processing Skills (TARPS) measures the quality and quantity of a subject's auditory
thinking and reasoning - the ability of a child to draw conclusions, to
make inferences, and to apply and use judgment from what the child
auditorily perceives. While many of the questions and statements do
reflect what a child has learned from home and formal education, the
purpose of this test is to determine what the child does with what he
or she has learned. For example, factual information learned from home
and formal education usually suggests a measure of memory but does not
always measure how a child uses what he or she has learned.
Test of Language Development - Intermediate: Fourth Edition [TOLD-I:4]
Donald D. Hammill, Phyllis L. Newcomer
The Test of Language Development-Intermediate, now in its fourth
edition, for ages 8 years to 18 years, is available to

Test of Phonological Awareness Skills [TOPAS]
Phyllis Newcomer, Edna Barenbaum
The TOPAS is helpful in identifying children ages 5 through 10 who have problems
in phonological awareness. It has four subtests (Rhyming, Incomplete Words,
Sound Sequencing, and Sound Deletion) that measure three areas of phonological
awareness: sound comparison, phoneme blending, and phoneme segmentation.
Test of Phonological Awareness - Second Edition: PLUS [TOPA-2+]
Joseph K. Torgesen, Brian R. Bryant
The TOPA - 2+, a revision of the popular Test of Phonological Awareness, is a group-administered, norm-referenced measure of phonological awareness for children ages 5 through 8 years. The scale, which can also be administered individually, has demonstrated reliability, and the test yields valid results that are reported in terms of percentile ranks and a variety of standard scores (e.g., scale scores, Normal Curve Equivalents) that can be selected based on the preference of the examiner and the purpose for which the results are to be used (e.g., identification; reports to local, state or federal agencies). The TOPA - 2+ has two versions, a Kindergarten version taking 30 to 45 minutes to administer and an Early Elementary version taking 15 to 30 minutes to administer, that measure young children's ability to (a) isolate individual phonemes in spoken words and (b) understand the relationships between letters and phonemes in English. The latter skill was not assessed by the original TOPA and is the reason the PLUS was added to the title. All new normative data has been collected and is presented.
