Product Details

With fewer items and age-appropriate modifications, the record forms for ages 7-12 and 13-17 provide deeper insight into the impact of stuttering on a young person than traditional fluency assessment. New data collected from January through June 2010 support the criterion-referenced scores for each form.

The OASES assessment uniquely measures the impact of stuttering on a person’s life—unlike most other stuttering instruments, which focus mainly on the frequency and type of stuttering events. This brief, yet comprehensive self-report is built on a solid theoretical foundation to help you assess the impact of stuttering in multiple life situations. Use this evidence-based tool to support effective intervention.

Kit Ordering Hint

  • If you would like to order the new test kit for ages 7-12 only, use product number 30418.
  • If you would like to order the new test kit for ages 13-17 only, use product number 30419.
  • If you would like both age ranges, order either of the test kits above PLUS the other packet of record forms for the additional age range (ages 7-12 record forms—30416; ages 13-17 record forms—30417).

Uses & Applications

  • Part of an initial diagnostic evaluation
  • Interview tool during intervention
  • Collaborative treatment planning tool with your client
  • Outcome measure
  • Progress monitoring tool to evaluate treatment strategies

Content & Administration

Each question is scored on a Likert scale from 1–5. Responses are totaled into Impact Scores and Impact Ratings (Mild through Severe) for each of the four sections:

  • General Information
  • Your Reactions to Stuttering
  • Communication in Daily Situations
  • Quality of Life

There also is an overall score.

Features & Benefits

  • Provides a quick and easy self-assessment that adds to a comprehensive evaluation
  • Enables insight beyond a numerical stuttering severity rating
  • Helps you better understand the complexity of a stuttering condition
  • Allows you to evaluate the speaker’s perceptions about stuttering behaviors, the speaker’s reactions to stuttering, and difficulties he or she may have in performing daily activities that involve communication
  • Offers the first published measure designed to examine functional communication difficulties and quality of life for those who stutter
  • Promotes self-awareness for a person who stutters of how the condition affects different areas of his or her life, including school, work, home, and social settings

Psychometric Information

  • Based on the author‘s adaptation of the World Health Organization’s original ICIDH and current ICF frameworks
  • Developed using a varied sample of individuals who stutter, ages 7:0–78:11
  • Criterion-referenced
  • Produces a descriptive Impact Rating
  • Scores are not age- or ability-based, since stuttering is not an age- or ability-specific communication disorder

Scoring

Use one of these convenient scoring options:

  • Traditional paper-based administration and scoring (all forms): Buy the hand-scoring starter kit and administer and score as you typically do.
  • Q Local™ software (Ages 18 form only): Purchase an annual license to the Q Local software for computer-based administration, scoring, and reporting—the first year is free! Then, buy a Q Local starter kit to try out the program.
  • Mail-in scoring services (Ages 18 form only): Don’t have time to score and write a report? Buy the mail-in starter kit with simplified, scannable answer sheets. Administer to your client on paper and then send the answer sheet to us—we’ll do the scoring and send it to you complete with a written report promptly!
