Use this tool to help you assess and track data on what, who, where, when, why and how questions while using the included goals to help you write your IEP. When children are learning to process and answer WH questions, they usually follow a developmental and predictable sequence. “What” is the earliest question mastered, followed by “Who” and “Where.” Finally, an understanding of “When” and “Why” develop, with “Why” being the most difficult to master.

I have created an informal assessment set based on the above information. Use the “Wh Questions Informal Assessment” to determine which wh questions need to be targeted. This assessment will include all of the different wh questions. Then based on the information gathered, choose which particular wh question assessment you need to administer.
Ten questions are included for each of the following:
After the pre-test, use the included ◈ graph ◈ to plot the student’s present levels of performance of wh questions. Once your determined goal has been targeted in therapy, give the same wh question assessment as a post-test and plot the progress on the graph to show at your IEP meetings.
★ IEP goals are included ranging in difficulty for wh questions.
★I also included a list of therapy materials that I like to use for wh questions. This could also be used for response to intervention!
I have also created the following:
