Five tests (two screens and three assessments) comprise the DEAP assessment process. Although you are not required to administer all test components, each screen can be administered in 5 minutes and each assessment in 15 minutes. From the Diagnostic Screen results, you can determine if additional testing is needed and, if so, the appropriate DEAP test to administer. The Articulation, Phonology, and Word Inconsistency Assessments then help clinicians differentiate between disorders of articulation; delayed phonological development and consistent phonological disorders; and inconsistent phonological disorders, respectively. If there are concerns about a possible oral motor disorder, the Oral Motor Screen may be administered to determine if an in-depth assessment of oral motor skills is warranted.

Uses of Deap DEAP can be used to: • Screen a child’s articulation, phonolog
