CPAC-S FAQs
What is CPAC™-S?  Contextual Probes of Articulation Competence™ – Spanish (CPAC™-S) is a comprehensive program for evaluating and treating Spanish articulation and phonology delays/disorders.
Who benefits from CPAC™-S?  CPAC™-S is appropriate for preschoolers through adults. It identifies exact pretreatment performance for any Spanish sound or particular phonological pattern, and lets you determine when clients are ready to progress to the next articulatory level, when to choose another phoneme to target, and when to dismiss clients from treatment.
How was CPAC™-S developed?  The CPAC™-S is based on the Contextual Probes of Articulation found in the Secord Contextual Articulation Tests® (S-CAT®). Dr. Wayne Secord suggested to the authors that a Spanish version of his S-CAT® would be beneficial for bilingual speech-language pathologists. The CPAC™-S was developed to:
  • Assess the phonological skills of Spanish speakers.
  • Gather pretreatment measures on target sounds and/or phonological processes.
  • Assist in deciding where to initiate treatment.
  • Identify facilitating (correct) contexts.
  • Serve as an effective ongoing measure of progress.
  • Posttest overall performance to determine when to discontinue treatment.
How does CPAC™-S work?  The CPAC™-S recognizes that articulation and phonology are dynamic, constantly changing processes. Since these processes are constantly changing, treatment for speech sound disorders requires constant monitoring and responsiveness to the changes that result from intervention.
How many probes does CPAC™-S contain?  The CPAC™-S probes 19 consonant and 10 phonological patterns probes. The consonant probes examine production in words, clusters, and sentences. The phonological pattern probes are quick and easy to use and require little to no phonological transcription.
Can I screen and administer a full assessment with the CPAC™-S?  Yes. Administer the CPAC™-S two ways: (1) as a Quick Screen, where the first 17 items assess all phonemes and frequently occurring phonological patterns and/or (2) as a Full Assessment where all 64 items comprehensively assess Spanish consonants and phonological skills.
Is the CPAC™-S norm-referenced?  Yes. There are norms available for the CPAC™-S for ages 3;0 - 8;11. Click here to learn more www.superduperinc.com/cpacs. You may purchase the entire kit or just the normative data manual.
How large was the standardization sample?  The standardization sample included 1127 children from the United States, Mexico, and Puerto Rico.
Did you compare the CPAC™-S to another Spanish articulation test?  Yes. We compared the CPAC™-S to the Spanish Articulation Measures (SAM). The results indicated the CPAC™-S and SAM data are highly significantly correlated.
What is included in the CPAC™-S kit?  The following items are included in the CPAC™-S kit:
  • Examiner’s Manual
  • Client Words and Sentences Lists
  • Flip Easel with Quick Screen and Full Assessment
  • CD-ROM containing all Inventory and Score forms for the assessment and probes
Is there a response analyzer available for the CPAC™-S?  Yes. You must first purchase the CPAC™-S Normative Data Manual. Then, go to www.superduperinc.com/analyzer and enter the unique product key found on the inside cover of your manual. The CPAC™-S Analyzer generates standard scores and percentile ranks. Additionally, the analyzer will identify and score dialectal variations as correct responses.
Does the CPAC™-S come with a CD-ROM?  Yes! The CPAC™-S includes a printable CD-ROM with inventory and score forms for the assessment and probes. You’ll save money with CPAC™-S because there are no forms to purchase!
