Product Details

ESP provides practical information to help professionals in educational, medical, or community settings make accurate screening decisions and plan intervention strategies.


  • Provides an excellent predictor of later development and school achievement.
  • Meets federal guidelines and mandates.
  • The first nationally standardized screener to provide users with a manual that reports the results of predictive, concurrent, and construct validity studies conducted during the two-year time period between standardization and test publication.
  • Allows appropriate comparisons of children with others the same age in the U.S. The scoring system also provides simple determination of local norms.
  • Links directly to many other diagnostic tools, such as the K-ABC, Vineland Adaptive Behavior Scales, Bruininks-Oseretsky Test of Motor Proficiency, and others.


Three basic profiles are supplemented by four surveys. Administer all or just the ones needed.

  • Cognitive/Language Profile: assess reasoning skills, visual organization and discrimination, receptive and expressive vocabulary, and basic school skills.
  • Motor Profile: assess both gross and fine motor skills such as walking a straight line, imitating arm and leg movements, tracing mazes, and drawing shapes.
  • Self-Help/Social Profile: a questionnaire completed by the child's parent, teacher, daycare provider, or a combination of them.
  • Articulation Survey: measures the child's ability to pronounce 20 words selected to test common articulation problems in the initial, medial, and final positions of words.
  • Home Survey and Health History Survey: completed by the parent and cover non-intrusive questions about the child's home environment, plus a brief checklist of any health problems the child has had.
  • Behavior Survey: used by the examiner to rate the child's behavior during administration of the Cognitive/Language and Motor Profiles. The child is rated in categories such as attention span, frustration tolerance, and response style.
