This Informal Articulation Screener is a useful resource in Speech and Language Therapy sessions. You can informally assess all speech sounds in word initial, medial and final position (where possible). The informal assessment also covers /s l r/ clusters/blends! You can choose to complete all of the assessment or just screen the sounds and positions being targeted.
This articulation screener now contains two versions- full page and half page options.
This Informal Speech Sound Assessment can be used with children of any age to informally assess for errors in their speech sound inventory. It is suitable for children who have articulation or phonological difficulties.
It is most suitable for use by a Speech and Language Pathologist/Therapist however it must not be used in place of an formal articulation assessment.
Please note: Although this product is designed to be thorough, it should only be used as an informal assessment during therapy sessions. It is advised that a formal articulation assessment be administered for the purposes of reports, IEPs, etc. The SLT Scrapbook, owners and creators, accept no responsibility for decisions related to the determination of eligibility and/or amount of services or any other decisions made as a result of this assessment.
The pictures are presented, three in a row, with a maximum of 3 pictures per page. The pages are simple, with few distractions, so that children focus on the stimuli rather than unrelated graphics.
The sounds are organized in order of general speech sound development, for ease of assessment. (i.e. for very young children, the sounds are grouped together, so you don't need to search through the full assessment).
A scoring form is included, the words are in the same order as presented in the assessment. The pages are numbered, and there is a column on the scoring form, so you can easily find the sound you wish to test.
Please note, the spellings of words on the scoring form are in US English.
The download is in a zip file. Two versions of the Informal Speech Sound Assessment are included.
The full page option involves no prep- it is ready to print and go!! (laminate if desired) Or you could save it onto your tablet, so that you only need to print the scoring form!
The half page version is low prep- simply cut the pages in half and laminate if desired.
This product is for individual, personal use, by you, in your classroom/therapy sessions only.
You are free to print off your own copies to use with your students, but please do not sell, share or claim as your own.
