Product Details

New! PLS-5 Spanish Norms in 1-Month Increments for Children Ages 2:6 to 2:11.

Content & Administration

When using PLS-5 Spanish with bilingual children, administer the test items in Spanish, then readminister the items with 0 scores in English. When using the test with monolingual Spanish speakers, administer only the items in Spanish. Many of the children you test speak both Spanish and English. Before PLS-5 Spanish, you needed to administer a test in English and a test in Spanish to obtain information about a bilingual child’s skills in each language. Often, both scores were low, because children have acquired some language skills in English and some in Spanish. Now, you can obtain an Auditory Comprehension, Expressive Communication, and Total Language score that captures the child’s Spanish and English skills in one score.

Features & Benefits

  • The test provides bilingual-conceptual language scores for Auditory Comprehension and Expressive Communication, plus a Total Language score.
  • The test is normed with 1,150 monolingual and bilingual Spanish-speaking children in the United States and Puerto Rico. PLS-5 Spanish uses the same manipulatives kit as the PLS-5 English edition. Spanish storybooks can be ordered separately.

  • Overview of PLS-5 Spanish and Our New Dual Language Scoring

    Presenter: Nancy Castilleja, MA, CCC-SLP

    Bilingual children’s language skills are often assessed first in their first language (L1), then in their second language (L2.) However, testing one language at a time often results in an underestimation of ability. Research examining the impact of dual language scoring to assess children’s combined language ability with a PLS-5 Spanish will be presented.
