The Test of Word Finding in Discourse (TWFD) helps answer important diagnostic questions related to word-finding difficulties. It is intended to be used with children in Grades 1 through 6. The test can be administered using a standardized or a non-standardized procedure.
Scores obtained include the Productivity Index, a quantitative measure of how much language is produced in a child’s discourse, and the Word Finding Behaviors Index, a frequency measure of specific word-finding behaviors present in a child’s discourse. Percentile ranks and standard scores can be obtained for both indexes. Informally, the Productivity and Behaviors Indexes are both helpful when describing the nature of students' word-finding difficulties, as well as when evaluating students' word-finding difficulties in written language.
