Bilingual English-Spanish Assessment (TM) (BESA (TM)): Manual Paperback / softback


When a young bilingual child experiences language difficulties, it can be hard to tell if those challenges are due to a disorder or just limited exposure to the English language.

That's a critical distinction--because while limited language exposure will fix itself over time, a language impairment is a clinical issue that will cause the child difficulties in school without timely and effective intervention.

Now there's a valid, reliable assessment that specifically responds to the needs of young Spanish-English bilingual children.

For use with children ages 4 through 6 years who have varying degrees of bilingualism, the Bilingual English-Spanish Assessment (BESA) was developed to: - identify phonological and/or language impairment in bilingual children and English language learners using a standardized protocol - differentiate between a delay in English language acquisition and a true language disorder - document children's speech and language strengths and needs - monitor children's progress in both languages and use the information to make decisions about intervention.

What's in the kit? - 1 BESA Test Manual - 1 BESA Stimulus Book - 20 BESA Protocol English Forms - 20 BESA Protocol Spanish Forms - 20 BIOS Forms - 20 ITALK forms.
