Description

The TAPS-4 provides information about language processing and comprehension skills across three intersecting areas: phonological processing, auditory memory and listening comprehension. These areas underpin the development of effective listening and communication skills, and are critical to the development of higher order language skills, including literacy skills.

The TAPS-4 features new subtests along with revisions to subtests from the TAPS-3, fully updated norms, and an expanded age range. The TAPS-4 also features audio administration for the subtests in which proper pronunciation of speech sounds is critical, providing a greater degree of standardization and accuracy over the testing process.

TAPS-4 Subtests

  1. Processing Oral Directions (without background noise): Assesses an individual’s ability to process and recall oral directions when presented in quiet listening conditions
  2. Word (Pair) Discrimination: Assesses an individual’s ability to discriminate whether a given word pair is the same or different
  3. Phonological Deletion: Assesses an individual’s ability to manipulate phonemes within words
  4. Phonological Blending: Assesses an individual’s ability to synthesize a word given the individual phonemes
  5. Syllabic Blending: Assesses an individual’s ability to synthesize a nonsense word given the individual syllables
  6. Auditory Figure-Ground (Processing Oral Directions with Background Noise): Assesses an individual’s ability to process and recall oral directions when presented with competing background noise
  7. Number Memory Forward: Assesses an individual’s ability to recall an auditory sequence of numbers in a given order
  8. Number Memory Reversed: Assesses an individual’s ability to recall an auditory sequence of numbers in the reverse order
  9. Word Memory: Assesses an individual’s ability to recall an auditory sequence of words in the given order
  10. Sentence Memory: Assesses an individual’s ability to recall a spoken sentence
  11. Auditory Comprehension of Language: Assesses an individual’s ability to comprehend oral language at the sentence and narrative level, including literal recall, inference, and higher-order language tasks such as idioms and figurative language

    This is an easily administered, comprehensive resource that is an excellent tool for an evaluation either for diagnosis or just for information as to help a student. The online report option is a steal for the price and saves much work.

  2. TAPS
    As an SLP in a pediatric Therapy Clinic, we rely on the TAPS to provide us with valuable diagnostic and therapeutic information regarding a child's processing and memorial skills. The TAPS give us guidance into how best to address a child's reading, comprehension and auidtory processing disturbances. The TAPS also guides the SLP when making a referral for CAPD assessments.

    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.
