Published in 1981, this book describes and critically examines the standardised tests and modes of assessment available and most commonly used by speech therapists, psychologists and educationalists.
Tests and other assessment procedures are discussed and therapeutic strategies suggested. Thus, psycholinguistic approaches such as ITPA, the Reynell Developmental Language Scales and the Aston Index; linguistic techniques such as LARSP and phonological assessments are described, and adult disorders as well as childhood problems, are reviewed. There is also a brief consideration of the problem of assessing the language of those not speaking English as a first language.
The book serves as a core text for student speech therapists and also as a reference for those practicing or researching in speech therapy, special education and linguistic pathology.
