Verbal Comprehension Screening Tool assesses a child’s language development as a guide to further intervention.
The Screening Tool is designed to be used by professionals and parents who are concerned with a child’s language development. The tool assesses a child’s verbal comprehension. This review can be useful whilst waiting for a formal assessment from a trained Speech and Language Professional.
The assessment is designed for pre-school children and school aged children, up to the age of 5. However, it will also be a useful for students with special needs, learning difficulties and those with a delayed or disordered language profile.
It is part of a suite of three screening tools in development:
• Verbal Comprehension
• Cognitive Development
• Expressive Language
The questions use engaging illustrations, and there is clear feedback on the answers given by the student. The questions are written on each page for the adult to ask of the student. There is also an option for the sentence to be spoken by the iPad.
The results are saved on the iPad and are displayed on the set-up screen. The results can also be printed or emailed to enable recording in other formats.
