This new edition of the popular Test of Pragmatic Language (TOPL) addresses issues including social skills and conflict resolution, providing essential information for school psychologists, counselors, clinical psychologists and special education specialists. These team members can now use the TOPL-2 as part of the evaluation and program planning.

The TOPL-2 identifies individuals with pragmatic language deficits, determines individual strengths and weaknesses, and documents progress over time. It focuses on a student’s ability to monitor and appraise the effectiveness of the response, to resolve the social problem situation.

The TOPL-2 includes goals, objectives and progress monitoring for:

  • Emotional Disabilities
  • Learning Disabilities
  • Behavior Problems
  • Asperger’s Spectrum Disorders
  • Language Impairments
  • Depression
  • Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorders
  • Anxiety Disorders

The clinical interpretive framework of the TOPL-2 allows the test user to see, at a glance, which components of the model are relevant to each item. Color Picture Prompts, in an easy-to-use easel format, maintain student interest and aid in evaluation and clarity. Verbal Prompts accurately reflect the environment of children and adolescents.

Comprehensive scoring guidelines indicate the components that each response measures, with multiple correct/incorrect response samples.

The TOPL-2 Kit includes a Manual, Picture Book, 25 Examiner Record Booklets for ages 6-7 and 25 Examiner Record Booklets for ages 8-18.
