Product Details

The PLS-5 Spanish Screening Test for Early Childhood Educators is an efficient tool to help specialists from multiple disciplines identify infants, toddlers, and young children who are at-risk for a speech or language disorder. Adapted from the PLS-5 Spanish Screening Test used by speech-language pathologists (SLPs), this tool can help you screen for a broad spectrum of skills within three to six speech and language areas—in just 5 to 10 minutes.

Applications

  • 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

Features & Benefits

  • It’s designed especially for early childhood educators, with separate kits for age groups 0-3 and 3-6.

  • The PLS-5 is ideal for programs serving infant, toddler, and preschool-age dual language learners.

  • It addresses newly-proposed Head Start performance standards for assessing dual language learners.

  • This brief screening test is engaging for children, and easy to administer and score for the examiner.

  • If the SLP uses PLS-5 Spanish as the follow-up diagnostic measure, review the child's responses with the SLP to determine if the scores can be transferred from the PLS-5 Spanish Screening Test for Early Childhood Educators Record Form to the PLS-5 Spanish Record Form.

  • Stimulus pages, administration and scoring directions, and technical information are all included in one compact manual, simplifying administration.

  • Record Forms are available in tear-off pads.

  • No manipulatives are needed for children ages 3:0 to 6:11. For infants and toddlers, collect the materials you need from toys and objects that are easily found within the child’s environment (squeaky toys, infant toys such as rattles, baby bottle, cup).

  • You have the option of training paraprofessionals or teacher’s aides to screen speech and language skills using this tool.

Areas of Assessment

  • Enables you to screen emerging language, interpersonal communication, and feeding skills for children birth through 2:11.

  • Screen children ages 3:0 to 6:11 in six areas:

    • Language
    • Articulation
    • Connected Speech
    • Social/Interpersonal Communication Skills
    • Stuttering
    • Voice
