Hi, everyone,I’m happy to share a new assessment/screening tool I created to help with quickly and efficiently collecting baseline and/or stimulability data during initial evaluations or re-evals.It includes a data collection protocol for consonants and vowels and is organized by CV, VC, CVC/Early Sounds, Middle Sounds, Late Sounds and Complex Blends.The data collection protocol lists each sound with accompanying vocabulary prompts and has a place to mark if the student can produce the sound in isolation. If true baseline data is being gathered, the picture prompts can be administered alone, or, if a stimulability percentage is needed, the words can be administered with a model and cues. The picture prompts can also be used as stimuli for collecting progress data if a goal or benchmark is written for a specific phoneme.When designing this tool, I tried to pick familiar, salient vocabulary, as well as pair a variety of vowel sounds with each consonant to look for facilitating contexts.If you decide to use it, I’d love your feedback! Thanks!
