SSI-4: Stuttering Severity Instrument

The fourth edition of the SSI is the only standardized stuttering assessment available. Newly updated and normed, this test will improve how you measure stuttering severity in children and adults. Administer the test in just 15 to 20 minutes. Then weigh your results against normative data collected from subjects ages two years and up.

The test covers four areas of speech behavior:

  1. Frequency (expressed in percent syllables stuttered and converted to scale scores of 2–18)
  2. Duration (timed to the nearest one tenth of a second and converted to scale scores of 2–18)
  3. Physical concomitants (converted to scale scores of 0–20)
  4. Naturalness of the individual’s speech

The SSI-4 can also be used in conjunction with the Stuttering Prediction Instruments for Young Children (SPI).

Packaged in a sturdy storage box, the complete kit includes:

  • An Examiner’s Manual and Picture Plates
  • 50 Test-Record and Frequency-Computation Forms
  • Qualification Level: A
  • Subjective Stuttering Scales

  4. A core tool to have in your tool chest!
    This is a great assessment to use to quickly show families/insurance companies where an individual's fluency skills are at. Wish the pictures were in color/bigger and in a manual that can stand alone on a table.

    The software included in the complete kit is helpful to calculate/analyze data obtained from speech samples. It's much faster than the old way of writing, counting, and figuring percentages of written dots/dashes made as you listen to your recoding. This tool allows you to calculate, save, calculate again, and save again (if you wish) to verify your findings. There are still areas left to the subjective view of the examiner, but that is to be expected; assessment of fluency is somewhat subjective in nature ... period. Overall, I found the instrument helpful.

    I love the new hear builder following directions and phonological awareness CD. The areas align with state standards. The graphics are wonderful and my students loved the demo. My students love chipper chat series and Auditory Memory for Quick Stories. We order most test products through Super Duper as well.

    I enjoy your products and love your language games/activities. I would like more interactive products and language stimulating toys for early childhood. I work with many pre-kindergarten students and would benefit from a larger variety of products for children at this age. I love the fluency enhancing tools and the Magne Talk activities.
