The Phonological Awareness Profile is an individually-administered, criterion-referenced test designed to diagnose deficits in phonological processing and phoneme/grapheme correspondence. Assess students' phonological processing and phoneme/grapheme correspondence. Use the test as a pre- and post-measure to track improvement in phonological awareness. The profile serves to complement other comprehensive measures of reading ability. Test results help you plan intervention programs.

Six tasks help determine the student's phonological awareness: rhyming, segmentation, isolation, deletion, substitution, and blending. Three additional tasks assess knowledge of phoneme/grapheme correspondence: graphemes, decoding, and invented spelling. Administer the entire test or select skills of interest.
