A self-report instrument for older children and adults with communication impairments, with a particular emphasis on pragmatic difficulties
This 70-item questionnaire is suitable for older children, adolescents or adults who speak in sentences and have a reading age of at least 10 years. 50 behavioural statements focus on communicative weaknesses and 20 on communicative strengths.
In order to circumvent lack of self-awareness, some items are rated on the feedback the informant has received from other people (e.g. “People tell me that I talk too much”).
Z-scores, scales scores and percentiles are provided for the following 3 composites; Language Structure, Pragmatic Skills, Social Engagement.
Scores can be calculated by hand or with the CD-ROM scorer included in the kit.
Includes manual, 25 checklists, 25 summary sheets, overlay keys for hand scoring and CD-ROM scorer in a bag
