Generally, I administer this when the child is first seen in therapy. I try to systematically teach these concepts then in therapy, and reassess later on. We all love to see progress, and this can show it in with clarity, which is nice to talk about at IEP meetings or when you write progress reports. For children in RtI, this can be used to develop classroom interventions to be implemented by everyone.
I thought I would mention here that I did not make this test. A fellow Chapel Hill City Schools SLP, Jennifer Kirschner, shared this with everyone she works with (like me!). She stated that many years ago, when she was a grad student, one of her practicum supervisors had a similar assessment, so Jennifer reworded it a bit and typed it up. She has given me permission to share it. I'm not sure who the original author actually was, but this doesn't appear online anywhere, or in test catalogs. Good news for you--you can have it free! I don't think I'm breaking any copyright laws.
