Social Language Informal Assessment
A perfect informal assessment for students who struggle with social communication! Great for creating goals and measuring progress.
Do you need to assess the social and pragmatic skills of higher functioning students at the K-5th grade levels?
Would you love to have an evaluation that literally wrote the report for you?
Then this informal assessment is PERFECT for you!
This is an informal (non-standardized) assessment. It should be used as one part within a broader array of tests when evaluating for autism spectrum disorder or other social language disorders.
This tool provides valuable information for developing baselines and creating goals including:
– story retelling
– inferring information from a story
– theory of mind
– feelings of others
– tone of voice
– social problem solving
– answering personal questions
– asking personal questions
– paralinguistic and pragmatic skills
The “Record Sheets” include text boxes. If using Adobe Reader (a free download), you can type directly into the sheets as you administer the informal assessment. The scores and strengths/weakness for each section will automatically be transferred to the Summary Sheet… almost completely writing your informal assessment report for you!
An easy and straightforward way to help with your social language assessments!

❤️ “This is the BEST product I have ever purchased! I have been looking for a way to monitor social skills, which is never easy, and this product is fantastic! It is also a great resource for presenting areas of social concern/growth at IEP meetings. I love that you even provided the report format! This is fast and easy to give, and gives some very meaningful information. It also can help to guide new social objectives, while giving you some baselines! Thank you so much. I highly recommend this product!”
❤️ “Oh my goodness, this is just what I was looking for! I’ve needed something fast instead of giving an entire test to check to see if a student would meet qualification guidelines! I LOVE that this has different sections than most of the standardized tests as well. I will be using this to supplement any of those assessments! THANK YOU!”
❤️ “I love, love, love your informal social language assessments. I own both of them. I am on an assessment team and I always use them as part of my pragmatic assessment. It is so easy to write goals using them. The Theory of Mind section is always so revealing and I like how you included Michele Garcia Winner’s double interview. These informal social language assessments are my very favorite TPT purchase.”
