Article focuses on the Comprehensive Assessment of Spoken Language (CASL), which is used to identify oral language skills in children and young adults ages three to twenty-one. The CASL is administered individually and orally, and consists of 15 tests to measure comprehensive, expressive, and retrieval processing skills in four language structure categories: (1) lexical/semantic, (2) syntactic, (3) supralinguistic, and (4) pragmatic. The assessment is ideal when measuring oral language disorders, delayed language, aphasia, and dyslexia. The author addresses frequently-asked questions regarding test administration.
