Assess all the consonant sounds and screen for Childhood Apraxia of Speech.
Ages: 3-0 through 21-11Testing Time: 15–20 minutes
The LAT was designed to identify children and young adults with abnormal articulation patterns. It ensures a thorough examination of all sounds and blends by presenting several sounds more than one time in the same position. All positions at the word level are tested.
Test results, in combination with the stimulability and intelligibility ratings and a Childhood Apraxia of Speech Screening included with the LAT, allow the SLP to make appropriate recommendations regarding the type and length of service. An accurate diagnosis leads to best practice therapy.
The LAT can also be used to measure progress in therapy.
The LinguiSystems Articulation Test consists of five picture plates that assess all the consonant sounds in words, including initial blends. The vocalic /r/ is tested in multiple contexts.
The Stimulability Assessment, administered immediately after an incorrect production is made, determines if the student is able to imitate a correct production.
The Intelligibility Rating Scale is based on the student's type and frequency of errors in a picture description task and helps you determine the type and severity of the speech-sound disorder.
The Articulation Summary is based on the student's type of speech-sound erors at the single-word level. This allows you to break down the speech-sound errors by substitution, omission, or distortion.
The Apraxia Screening Summary is based on the student's sequential productions of twelve multisyllabic words. Inconsistent repetition of a multisyllabic word may lead to follow-up tests regarding Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS).
The Speech Sound Error Analysis is a two-page summary in the test form that allows you to visually analyze the student's speech errors by word location, type, and stimulability. All phonemes tested in the LAT are included in the Speech Sound Error Analysis.
The LAT is easy to administer, score, and interpret.
