Product Details

The Preschool Language Scales-5 Screening Test for Early Childhood Educators can be used to screen children ages 3 to 6:11 in such areas as language, articulation, connected speech, communication skills, stuttering and voice. The PLS-5 also enables screening of emerging interpersonal, communication, and feeding skills for children birth through 2:11.

Benefits

  • Conduct infant, preschool, or kindergarten language screenings of emerging developmental communication skills.
  • Identify children who need to be referred to an SLP for further speech or language assessment.
  • Simplify administration, with stimulus pages, administration and scoring directions, and technical information all in one compact manual.
  • Address newly-proposed Head Start performance standards for assessing dual language learners.

Features

PLS-5 is designed especially for early childhood education, with separate kits for age groups 0–3 and 3–6.

If an SLP uses PLS-5 as the follow-up diagnostic language measure, there's no need to re-administer the test items from the screening - simply transfer responses from the PLS-5 Screening Tests to the PLS-5 protocol.

  • Ideal for programs serving infants, toddlers, and preschoolers whose primary language is English.
  • Brief and engaging for children, and easy to administer and score for the examiner.
  • No manipulatives needed for children ages 3:0 to 6:11. For infants and toddlers, use toys and objects easily found within the child's environment (e.g., squeaky toys, rattles, baby bottle, cup).
  • Record Forms are available in tear-off pads.
