Use this no print articulation screener to informally evaluate all sounds or just the sounds you need to hear at the word level. This screener includes all consonant sounds including vocalic /r/ and consonant blends. It even includes final /st/ and /sk/ blends.
This screener takes between 5-15 minutes to administer and is easy to score on the go.

-This articulation screener is intended to identify a student's articulation errors on consonant sounds.
-This screener contains 1 or 2 syllable words with the following sounds:

-This screener is not a formal assessment and has no age based normative data.
-Open the Screener pdf on an iPad or tablet device. If you are testing all sounds, proceed through the screener stopping on each page. If you are looking for specific sounds, tap on the square with the sounds you wish to hear to take you directly to that page. Arrows at the bottom of the page will allow you to move forward or backward one page in the screener.
*I recommend using the Evernote app for administration of stimuli.*
-Print the screener record forms on pages 3-4 of this document to track student responses or use your favorite note taking app to keep track of scores.
-Each item in this screener is selected to target only one sound. When recording a student’s response, only score the bolded target sound.
-I recommend scoring an accurate response with a “1” and inaccurate responses with “0.”
-At the end, target the total number of correct responses. Your judgement as a speech language pathologist to determine whether or not these errors are appropriate for a student’s age.
Pointing to the picture.
“What is this?”
“What do we call this?”
If a student does not know what a word is, Say “This is a _____” then proceed to share a sentence about the target word without actually using the word. Ask the student what the picture is. This allows for delayed imitation.
