Cognitive Speech-Language Inventory

(1 customer review)


The Cognitive Speech-Language Inventory (C.S-L.I) is designed to assess cognitive-communication skills and speech-language abilities. This tool can be used to help rapidly plug-in client data into current medical information systems. Speech-language therapists and professionals may use this assessment tool in its entirety or complete subsections based on client abilities and cognitive-communication needs. This assessment may guide professionals in identifying need for further testing within specific domains or may be used independently to generate real-world functional goals for speech therapy. Although this evaluation was generated and has been tested by medical SLPs in sub-acute rehabilitation and skilled nursing settings, no standardized data has been collected.
