____________________________________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 >

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
