Description

HKCLASS-P is the product of the research team led by Professor Kathy LEE. It is a validated language evaluation tool for children aged 2 to 4. HKCLASS-P consists of two versions: full assessment and screening. The full assessment version covers comprehensive evaluation on a child’s receptive vocabulary, expressive vocabulary, receptive grammar, expressive grammar and early pragmatics. The screening version consists of 8 to 12 items which could be accomplished within 10 minutes. Online and face-to-face test modes are available for the screening version. While only qualified speech therapists are eligible users of the assessment version, the screening version could be used by related professions to enable early identification to be referred to speech therapists.
