CAAP-2: Clinical Assessment of Articulation and Phonology - 2nd Edition




The CAAP-2 is the most current assessment for articulation and phonology.

It is time-efficient, accurate, and yields results that are easy to score and interpret. You may administer the Articulation Inventory in 15-20 minutes. The checklist approach to assessing phonological processes virtually eliminates the need for phonetic transcription. CAAP-2 is an assessment that you will like giving and children will enjoy taking.

Qualify students for therapy with:

  • Word standard scores
  • Sentence standard scores
  • Phonology standard scores

Articulation inventory targets:

  • Pre- and post-vocalic consonant singletons
  • Cluster words containing S, R, and L in the initial position
  • Three- and four-syllable words
  • Post-vocalic productions of R
  • The production of sounds in sentences (for children 5 years and older)

Phonological process checklists assess:

  • Final consonant deletion
  • Cluster reduction
  • Syllable reduction
  • Gliding
  • Vocalization
  • Fronting (velar and palatal)
  • Deaffrication
  • Stopping
  • Prevocalic voicing
  • Postvocalic devoicing

Valid and Reliable

CAAP-2 is a valid and reliable instrument. The CAAP-2 standardization sample included 1486 children from the U.S. and closely resembles 2013 U.S. Census Data. Concurrent validity studies comparing CAAP to the GFTA-2 and the KLPA-2 were significant beyond p < .01 for all raw scores, standard scores and percentile ranks (ranging from .789 to .948). Inter-rater reliability coefficients were all above .99.

Testing Time: 15-20 minutes
