Price: $180.00




Aids in the diagnosis and treatment
of childhood apraxia of speech.

____________________________________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.
