____________________________________Kaufman Speech Praxis Test (KSPT)


The Kaufman Speech Praxis Test (KSPT) is a norm-referenced, diagnostic test assisting in the identification and treatment of childhood apraxia of speech. Easy to administer and score, KSPT measures a child's imitative responses to the clinician, identifies where the speech system is breaking down, and points to a systematic course of treatment.

The KSPT is useful beyond establishing an initial diagnosis, as results can be used to measure and quantify gains in motor-speech proficiency. Also, test sections can assist in developing goals for IEPs and measuring progress. Order includes complete KSPT with a packet of 25 score sheets. Additional score sheets may be ordered here. Ages: 2;0 – 5;11. Admin time: 5-15 minutes.

  • Identifies where the child's speech system is breaking down and points to a specific course of treatment.
  • Norm-referenced and standardized items that provide a raw score, standard score, and a percentile ranking.
  • Provides normative information for the "normal" pediatric speaking population and the "disordered" population.
  • Results assist in planning treatment, developing goals for IEPs, and measuring progress.
  • Breakdowns in KSPT match the levels of treatment in the
    K-SLP Treatment Kits, allowing for a seamless transition to therapy. 
  • In-Depth Training Available >

Nancy Kaufman,

MA, CCC-SLP

Nancy R. Kaufman is the owner and Director of the Kaufman Children's Center for Speech, Language, Sensory-Motor, and Social Connections, Inc. located in West Bloomfield, MI. Over the past 30 years Nancy has developed and perfected highly effective and evidence-based methods and strategies to evaluate and treat children with childhood apraxia of speech (CAS). Nancy's current protocol to address CAS, The Kaufman Speech to Language Protocol (K-SLP), has been evolving since 1979.

The K-SLP is rooted in teaching strategies of applied behavioral analysis and the principles of motor learning. Some of the strategies include shaping successive word approximations toward target syllables and words, teaching compensatory placements for vowels and consonants of which the child is not stimulable, implementing pivot syllables, words and phrases, as well as multisensory cueing and scripting towards functional and effective expressive language. Nancy has trained over 35,000 SLPs to implement her protocol and families from around the world bring children with CAS to her clinic to receive intensive therapy.

Nancy was the recipient of The 2010 Michigan State University College of Communication Arts & Sciences Outstanding Alumni Award, The 2011 Michigan-Speech-Language-Hearing Association Distinguished Service Award, and the 2015 Wayne State University Distinguished Alumni Award. Nancy also serves on the Professional Advisory Board of the Childhood Apraxia of Speech Association of North America. She is also the author of several highly effective treatment materials that address CAS and other sound disorders. In addition, many specialists in the field of applied verbal behavior have adopted the K-SLP for children with autism spectrum disorder. Nancy received her Bachelor's degree at Michigan State University and her Master's degree at Wayne State University.


Customer Reviews:

"I used mine yesterday and it's the best tool for analyzing speech production in a hierarchy of sounds, starting with the easiest and progressing through the complex. It breaks it down and really gives you good data for not only diagnosis and appraisal, but for planning intervention." – Speech-Language Pathologist, 3/09/2016


"The levels of breakdown match the levels of treatment in the Kaufman Treatment Kits, allowing for a seamless transition to therapy." – Speech-Language Pathologist, 2014
