The speech subtest examines children’s production of speech sounds by asking them to name a series of pictures of everyday items. The oral motor subtest examines children's coordination and sequencing of muscles movements of the face, mouth and for speech.
Clinical Evaluation of Language Fundamentals- Preschool 2nd Edition (CELF-P2)
This is a test for determining if a child (ages 3 to 6 years) has a language disorder or delay. It looks at children’s understanding of language, for example their ability to follow directions, their understanding of concept words and adjectives, and their understanding of sentences that include different aspects of grammar. It also tests children’s expressive language, for example, their ability to name pictures, to repeat sentences and knowledge of grammatical rules.
Raven’s Progressive Matrices
The Raven’s Coloured Progressive Matrices Test (CPM) is a non-verbal measure of general ability (intelligence). It includes visual patterns and shapes to assess general ability from a non-verbal perspective. The test is presented as coloured illustrations printed in a book, making the problem to be solved more obvious with the least possible verbal explanation. In this way it is considered a fairer assessment of ability for children who experience disordered or delayed language abilities.
