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. Breakdowns in KSPT match the levels of treatment in the K-SLP Treatment Kits, allowing for a seamless transition to therapy. Ages: 2;0 – 5;11. Admin time: 5-15 minutes.
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.
The author recommends using this test as a clinical tool to determine where a child's speech is breaking down and for selecting target souns and words to implement the Kaufman Speech to Language Protocol (K-SLP). At this time, there are no plans to update the test normative data as the clinical application of the test remains current and appropriate.
"That’s a thorough test! There aren’t a ton of CAS assessments out there, but I really like this one. It doesn’t take very long to administer and gives some great information. Plus you can use it to track progress." Click here to read The Speech Girls entire blog review. – The Speech Girls (Feb. 2018)
"I really like the Kaufman Test as it gives you a good starting point in therapy (where their speech breaks down)." – SLP (Dec. 2017)

"I recommend the Kaufman Test. Very detailed. Provides good info. It is time-consuming." – SLP (Dec. 2017)
"I like the Kaufman Test. It's not hard to give or score." – SLP (Oct. 2017)

"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." – SLP (Mar. 2016)
"The Kaufman Test has worked great for me." – SLP (Feb. 2016)
"I recommend the KSPT- It starts with vowels. So even in those limited contexts, it's helpful and thorough. It also has the nonspeech imitation tasks. It's all imitative (in the simple to complex phoneme parts) but it will cover all your contexts and sounds, imo. The scoring is a pain, to me, but I use it for progress and target planning, even for kiddos who aren't exactly exhibiting CAS. It is a lifesaver for those who really do, however." – SLP (Feb. 2016)
"Kaufman breaks down the test beautifully with assessment in multiple areas of motor speech function." – SLP (Feb. 2016)
"I love the test and use it for progress measures for not only my apraxic students but others as well. So many contexts to hear!" – SLP (Feb. 2016)
"The levels of breakdown match the levels of treatment in the Kaufman Treatment Kits, allowing for a seamless transition to therapy." – SLP (2014)
