The Comprehensive Assessment of Spoken Language, Second Edition is the most up-to-date measure of oral language skills available. It offers the flexibility of 14 stand-alone tests in one comprehensive yet specific battery. Preserving the strengths of the original and highly regarded test, the second edition introduces new and enhanced features to increase validity, functionality, and ease of use.
For children and young adults ages 3 to 21, the CASL-2 measures spoken language across four structural categories:
1. Lexical/Semantic: Knowledge and use of words and word combinations.
2. Syntactic: Knowledge and use of grammar.
3. Supralinguistic: Knowledge and use of language in which meaning is not directly available from the surface lexical and syntactic information.
4. Pragmatic Language: Knowledge of language that is appropriate across different situational contexts and the ability to modify language according to the social situation.
