Test Review: PLS-5 English

The PLS-5 is designed for use with children aged birth through 7;11 to assess language development and only be used to probe for information and not to identify a disorder or disability.

Report Writing: Background

It is important to be as thorough as possible when writing the background section of the evaluation as extenuating circumstances could explain a delay in language development and also help the evaluator differentiate between a delay, disorder, or normal language development, given the circumstances.
