Pragmatic language, used socially and in conflict resolution, involves understanding WHAT and WHY something was said, as well as understanding visual cues and linguistic abstractions. The TOPL-2 focuses on the students ability to interpret a situation accurately. This new edition provides critical updates: new colour picture prompts, more accurate verbal prompts, a clinical interpretive framework which relates items to the theoretical model, a comprehensive scoring guideline, and expanded norms through age 18.
Administration and Scoring
The TOPL-2 was designed to be individually administered by speech & language therapists, educational and clinical psychologists, counsellors, and special education professionals. The test can be completed in 45-60 minutes.
