Description:Assists in the diagnosis and treatment of developmental apraxia (dyspraxia) of speech in preschool children. Identifies the level of breakdown in a child's ability to speak. Measures a child's imitative responses, locates where the child's speech system is breaking down, and points to a systematic course of treatment. Measures and quantifies gains in motor-speech proficiency in several ways. Individual sections of the test can be used to establish treatment goals and measure progress.
