2nd Edition of this popular standardised assessment that uses structured observation of play to analyse early skills required for language development. The tool provides an objective indication of a young child’s level of early concept formation and symbolisation – abilities that precede and develop alongside expressive and receptive language.
Four sets of miniature objects are presented in a set order, in different situations, enabling the facilitator to observe if the child relates to them appropriately. Objects are purposefully chosen and can lend themselves to a variety of interrelationships. The scoring system is based on the number of meaningful responses and connections the child is able to make. The outcomes of this test can be used to plan further appropriate interventions.
