COMPREHENSIVE ASSESSMENT OF SPOKEN LANGUAGE (CASL)
The Comprehensive Assessment of Spoken Language (CASL) is a speech and language assessment designed for use to evaluate children with speech or communication disabilities. This battery of 15 individually and orally administered tests enables the speech language therapist to identify language disorders and impairment as outlined by IDEA, including delayed language, oral language disorders, dyslexia, and aphasia. The tests measure language processing skills (comprehension, expression, and retrieval) in four categories: Lexical / Semantic Tests to evaluate knowledge and use of words and word combinations; Syntactic Tests to evaluate knowledge and use of grammar (morphology and syntax); Supralinguistic Tests to evaluate comprehension of complex language whose meaning is not directly available from lexical or grammatical information; and Pragmatic Tests to evaluate awareness of appropriate language in a situational context and the ability to modify this language as necessary. Core tests measure the most representative aspects of each language category for six age bands, and supplementary tests provide additional diagnostic information to yield assessment data for quantitative (profile) and qualitative (clinical) analyses. The complete assessment kit includes three test books, 12 each of Record Form 1 for younger children and Record Form 2 for older children, a manual, and a norms book. OPTIONS: ASSIST scoring software for Windows and Macintosh; overview video; additional record forms and test books.
