New Talking Assessment App

‘Expressive Language’ is a new app to help you assess children with possible speaking difficulties.

Ideal as an initial screening tool, ‘Expressive Language’ provides useful assessment information around the child’s ability to use spoken (expressive) language.

‘Expressive Language’ assesses a child’s expressive language skills by using a range of different questioning techniques. Assessment records and analysis features give you an overview of a child’s spoken language skills, making the app a great tool to use while waiting for a formal assessment.
