Speech Me Maybe


This product is an informal language assessment tool for individuals with autism, developmental disabilities, and related disorders. I am always scrambling to find assessment tools that are at the level of my students and sometimes that is hard to do! This resource is for younger, lower level students that do not present well on standardized measures. It also is a great tool to use when probing for beginning language goals.

A great feature of this product is that I have used ALL REAL PHOTOS *** NO line drawings or symbols are included.

Included you will find an assessment protocol, a receptive language stimulus book, and an expressive language stimulus book. Here is a breakdown…
