Second Edition

Sharon V. Gauthier and Charles L. Madison


· Ages: 3-6 through 6-11 Years

· Testing Time: 5 minutes

· Administration: Individual


This individually administered screening test helps you identify children who need further diagnostic testing to determine whether or not they have language deficits that will accelerate academic failure. In 5 minutes, you’ll be able to identify a child who may fail academically because of a language deficit.


The KLST-2 is a thorough, quick language screener based on the original KLST, which has a 25-year history of use in the field. This edition is completely restandardised and updated; some items have been modified, and the test has been normed. You will find this to be a user-friendly screening test that employs a number of psycho-linguistically relevant tasks.


Assess expressive and receptive language competence by screening the child’s ability to:

·   Demonstrate common preschool knowledge

·   Understand questions

·   Follow commands

·   Repeat sentences

·   Compare and contrast common objects

·   Use spontaneous speech


Thoroughly researched, the KLST-2 helps you obtain all of this information for individuals ages 3-6 through 6-11. The KLST-2 has strong predictive validity.


The KLST-2 was normed on a sample of 519 children, ages 4-0 through 6-11. Reliability coefficients through 4 test/retest studies were .82 or above. Criterion-related validity has been demonstrated through three studies that demonstrate correlations with PLS­3, TOLD-P:3, and CELF-P.
