Six tests designed to sample different aspects of phonological processing
Inform further teaching and intervention programmes
Can be used with EAL and dyslexic children
PhAB2 Primary offers a comprehensive battery of tests that help assess phonological awareness in children aged 5 -11 years. An essential toolkit for SENCOs, specialist teachers and educational psychologists, it helps identify the phonological difficulties some children encounter in learning to read. In turn, this allows appropriate intervention to be provided to help improve underlying literacy skills.
This latest edition has been newly standardised, and in addition to the original subtests, PhAB2 Primary also includes four new subtests that reflect the latest research in phonological awareness.
PhAB2 Primary includes targeted testing ranges for 5-6 and 7-11 year olds, providing more sensitive tests and a greater understanding of a child’s phonological strengths and weaknesses. If you are looking for an assessment for 11-14 year olds, take a look at the Phonological Assessment Battery (PhAB).
PhAB2 Primary has made revisions to the six subtests contained in the previous version:
PhAB2 Primary also includes four new subtests:
Developed by a group of expert researchers and psychologists, led by University College London, the Phonological Assessment Battery (PhAB)is designed to assess phonological processing in individual children. It is a practical measure that identifies children aged 6-14 years who have significant phonological difficulties and need special help in processing sounds in spoken language.
It is appropriate for use with bilingual children or children with English as an Additional Language and also includes data on special studies completed for children with specific learning difficulties (dyslexia).
PhAB comprises six standardised tests, all designed to sample different aspects of phonological processing:
Due to the diagnostic nature of the results provided, PhAB can also be used to inform further teaching and intervention programmes to help with the child’s specific phonological difficulties.
