The KSPT identifies the level of breakdown in a child’s ability to speak so that treatment can be established and improvement tracked. Easy to administer and score, the test helps you measure a child’s imitative responses to the clinician, locate where the child’s speech system is breaking down, and points to a systematic course of treatment. Results of the KPST are useful beyond establishing an initial diagnosis. Gains in motor-speech proficiency can be measured and quantified in several ways. Individual sections of the test can be used to establish treatment goals and measure progress. KPST results also can be used to generate Individualized Education Programs (IEPs).
