I've just ordered the new CELF;5 for Speech Smart Therapy so we can offer the latest up to date assessment for assessing language skills of school age children. The new CELF-5 A&NZ is a comprehensive battery of tests that provides a streamlined, flexible approach to language assessment. This latest version of this gold standard popular language assessment allows therapists to compare a child's language skills to other Australian children of the same age and allows us to look at a child's strengths and weaknesses in their language skills and pragmatics (social skills). Assessment results are important to help support parents, teachers and therapists to make informed decisions regarding the areas a student requires support in to help them maximise their learning. This newest version is due for release in May and will be available at Speech Smart Therapy. This updated version is reported to offer a more robust assessment of pragmatics (social skills) using observations and interactive activities. Also included are new written language tests for more comprehensive assessment and updated norms.
