The Capute Scales

Fast and easy to complete, The Capute Scales requires minimal equipment and can be administered in just 6 to 20 minutes. Because the tests measure functioning across two streams of development, they help clinicians distinguish between global developmental delays and specific areas of concern. Created for clinical settings, The Capute Scales is an effective and efficient assessment tool for general pediatric practice and for specialists such as developmental pediatricians, speech-language pathologists, and occupational therapists. This standardized instrument will assist clinicians in making developmental diagnoses, counseling families, and guiding them to appropriate intervention services. The complete system includes
- Cognitive Adaptive Test (CAT), 57 items focused on visual-motor functioning
- Clinical Linguistic & Auditory Milestone Scale (CLAMS), 43 items focused on expressive and receptive language development
- Manual with an explanation of the scales' development, Spanish and Russian score sheet translations, guidelines on administration and scoring, an overview of clinical and research use, and information on standardization of the scales and their use in other languages
