CAAP-2: Clinical Assessment of Articulation and Phonology–Second Edition
The CAAP-2 is the most current assessment for articulation and phonology. It is time-efficient, accurate, and yields results that are easy to score and interpret. You may administer the Articulation Inventory in 15-20 minutes. The checklist approach to assessing phonological processes virtually eliminates the need for phonetic transcription. CAAP-2 is an assessment that you will like giving and children will enjoy taking. Qualify students for therapy with: Word standard scores Sentence standard scores Phonology standard scores Articulation inventory targets: Pre- and postvocalic consonant singletons Cluster words containing S, R, and L in the initial position Three- and four-syllable words Postvocalic productions of R The production of sounds in sentences (for children 5 years and older) Phonological process checklists assess: Final consonant deletion Cluster reduction Syllable reduction Gliding Vocalization Fronting (velar and palatal) Deaffrication Stopping Prevocalic voicing Postvocalic devoicing Valid and Reliable CAAP-2 is a valid and reliable instrument. The CAAP-2 standardization sample included 1486 children from the U.S. and closely resembles 2013 U.S. Census Data. Concurrent validity studies comparing CAAP to the GFTA-2 and the KLPA-2 were significant beyond p<.01 for all raw scores, standard scores and percentile ranks (ranging from .789 to .948). Inter-rater reliability coefficients were all above .99.
