Accurately and Reliably
Determine a Child’s Language Disorder.
The CELF®–4 assessment process has the flexibility and diagnostic information that you need to design an individualized assessment path for each client.
Level 1 – The four most discriminating subtests enable you to quickly determine whether or not there is a language disorder in one-third less time.
Level 2 – Determine the nature of the disorder and the student’s strengths and weaknesses with two additional subtests to obtain Receptive Language, Expressive Language, Language Structure, Language Content, Language Memory, and Working Memory Index scores.
Level 3 – Decide what clinical skill deficits underlie the disorder with subtests such as Phonological Awareness, Rapid Automatic Naming, Number Repetition, Familiar Sequences, Word Associations, and Working Memory composite.
Level 4 – Explore how the student’s classroom language performance and social interactions are affected. Use the Pragmatics Profile and the Observational Rating Scale to continue your assessment.
