Description



Ages: 3-0 through 6-11Testing Time: 10 minutesAdministration: Individual



The Fluharty Preschool Speech and Language Screening Test-Second Edition
(Fluharty-2) contains five subtests: Articulation, Repeating Sentences,
Responding to Directives and Answering Questions, and Describing
Actions and Sequencing Events. Scores reflect performance in
articulation, receptive language, expressive language, and composite
language. The Fluharty-2 provides rapid identification of those
preschool children for whom a complete speech and language evaluation is
recommended. The Fluharty-2 is a complete revision, normed on 705
children in 21 states. Sample populations represent the geographical
distribution of the United States in 1998 and projected figures for
2000.



Test Reliability



Coefficient alphas and test-retest correlations are high enough to warrant individual administration of the Fluharty-2.



Validity



Content
validity studies related the test's content to current developmental
studies and provided thorough individual item analysis.
Criterion-related validity studies compared subtests of the Fluharty-2
to the TOLD-P:3 composites. Results demonstrated a strong correlation
between the two instruments. Construct validity measures support the
Fluharty-2 as a valid screening tool for use with preschool children.



Limiting Bias



Examination
of items on the Fluharty-2 indicated little or no bias relative to
gender, disability, racial, socioeconomic or ethnic group.
