Best-Selling Assessment of Developmental Delays
Ages: 3-0 through adult
Testing Time: 45 to 90 minutes
The FCP-R lets you account for some of the unique aspects of communication and the diversity among individuals with developmental and acquired delays. It addresses all communication possibilities and is not limited to oral language expression. Test items help fulfill the standards in state and federal regulations in the United States.
The test assesses students' language-based responses to portrayed, peer-to-peer situations which is unlike other tests which rely on observation forms.
The FCP-R yields an overall inventory of the individual's communication abilities, mode of communication (e.g., verbal, sign, nonverbal, augmentative), and degree of independence. Clients are assessed and rated in the major skills categories of communication through direct observation, teacher and caregiver reports and one on one testing. The FCP-R is appropriate for individuals who range between mild and profound deficits.
