Learn how to tailor IEPs for your child's success and maximize their learning potential with the comprehensive test of phonological processing
Contributed by April Rehrig
The CTOPP helps evaluate phonological processing as a prerequisite for reading fluency. This instrument originally published in 1999 was updated in 2013. It’s intended for ages 4:0- 24:11 and takes approximately 40 minutes to complete. Both the CTOPP and the CTOPP-2 are designed to assess phonological awareness, phonological memory, and rapid naming. The CTOPP-2 is commonly used by school psychologists and Speech and Language Therapists for special education assessments. Note, there is no advanced training requirement in the assessment and interpretation of this measure (general and special education teachers may administer this test).

From slaves brought here in the early 17th century, to the African American trailblazers of today, we celebrate the resilience and determination of a community that has faced and overcome numerous obstacles.
Knowing the difference between learning disability and learning difference in neurodiversity discourse is crucial as one implies a deficit while the other implies diversity.
