About This Product

Picture of Receptive, Expressive and Social Communication Assessment-Elementary

Based on current research and designed for today’s child, the RESCA-E was developed to provide essential information to professionals and parents about a child’s receptive, expressive, and social communication language skills. It targets critical areas of language development which are often included in IEPs and treatment plans but difficult or impossible to objectively measure with existing tests for the elementary-age population.

The RESCA-E combines standardized tests and informal observation across settings to give a more complete picture of a child’s communication skills. It can be used with a variety of children—including those with limited language skills and those who do well academically yet struggle in social situations.

In order to participate in the RESCA-E, the child should be able to reliably point to a requested picture (receptive tasks) and verbalize responses  (expressive tasks). Children with possible language or social-pragmatic deficits are excellent candidates for this test.
