Measure Processing, Auditory Memory, and Comprehension in Children and Young Adults


The TAPS-4 provides information about language processing and comprehension skills across three intersecting areas: phonological processing, auditory memory, and listening comprehension.

Features and benefits

  • Updates include new and revised subtests, fully updated normative data, and an expanded age range to 21 years.
  • An audio CD features audio administration for the subtests for which proper pronunciation of speech sounds is critical, allowing for more consistent and reliable administration of the phonological subtests.
  • Scaled scores are provided for subtests; standard scores are provided for cores and the overall score. Discrepancy scores allow comparison of performance across subtests.
