A screening is a shortened version of a longer, more conclusive test. Screenings are given only to identify if a child needs further evaluation. If a child scores in the low-average or below-average range on a screening measure, additional testing will typically be recommended before treatment is initiated. Screenings can provide general information about both speech and language, including the following:

  • Articulation (enunciation of speech sounds)
  • Fluency (smooth flow of speech)
  • Voice (tone and quality)
  • Receptive Language (ability to process, understand, and act on language the child has heard)
  • Expressive Language (vocabulary, grammar, pragmatics, and overall communication content)
