Ideal for measuring delayed language, spoken language disorders, dyslexia and aphasia, the CASL: Comprehensive Assessment of Spoken Language is an individually administered, research-based oral language assessment battery. It provides a precise picture of language processing skills and structural knowledge, allowing you to document development from preschool through the postsecondary years. Because the CASL provides age-based norms, it satisfies the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) requirements for identifying language impairment. 15 Stand-Alone Tests The 15 tests included in this battery measure comprehension, expression, and retrieval skills in four structural categories:

Lexical/Semantic Tests
Comprehension of Basic Concepts Antonyms Synonyms Sentence Completion Idiomatic Language

Syntactic Tests
Syntax Construction Paragraph Comprehension Grammatical Morphemes Sentence Comprehension Grammaticality Judgment

Supralinguistic Tests
