What is a Speech and Language Assessment?

A speech and language assessment is a set of activities and games that a SLP administers in order to evaluate speech and language skills.

A speech and language assessment will allow you to know what exactly are your child’s difficulties when it comes to language, speech or communication. 

The tests are fun for the child, and are aimed to really dig deep in finding out if there is actually some difficulty that may reflect on their school performance.

What does a Speech and Language Assessment assess?

  • Understanding of language (e.g. if the child is able to understand both simple and complex instructions)
  • Use of language (e.g. if the child is able to use language in a variety of situations)
  • Speech sounds (e.g. if the child is able to pronounce all the sounds correctly)
  • Attention (e.g. if the child is able to focus on an activity for an amount of time – very important for school work)
  • Memory and Processing (e.g. if the child is able to remember bits of information and how long does it take for them to use them).
  • Social communication (if the child is able to take turns, understand other’s point of view, etc)
