Use of technology in phonological assessment: Evaluation of early meaningful speech and prelinguistic vocalizations
Technologies that assist in the assessment of phonological abilities in early meaningful speech and prelinguistic vocalizations are discussed. Computerized assessment of phonological abilities (CAP) software offers significant time savings for basic analyses and makes possible the completion of more detailed analyses. The programs discussed in this article allow flexibility in determining not only the most appropriate analyses for an individual client, but also the design of the optimal symbol system for representing the client's productions. Case studies are included to illustrate the clinical benefits of CAP technology.
