Below is a list of common speech-language pathology assessments used by SLPs that can be a good starting point. You’ll find assessments for:

  • Myofuctional assessments

  • Aphasia, cognitive communication and traumatic brain injury assessments

  • Comprehensive language assessments

  • Early intervention and preschool

Because SLPs can work with people across the lifespan and the breadth of the field is expansive, there are many different assessment tools available. These tools have been norm-referenced on particular populations, so each SLP needs to use their clinical judgment to design therapy that is culturally responsive and recognizes neurodiversity.
